Prayer of the Day

The Spes Unica is the symbol for the Congregation of Holy Cross and is Latin for "Hail to the Cross, our only hope."

Each school day at the beginning of second period, Hoban students and Holy Cross educators pause for prayer. An assigned reader announces the intentions and leads the prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance over the public address system. Check this page daily so that you may share in our prayers for the selected donors of the day, for each of us and for our world.

Prayer of the Day: 

  • May we never feel forsaken, O Lord, whether in the quietness of our resting, in the storms of the day, in the cares of the world or in the journey of life. Amen.
