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 daily so that you may share in our prayers for the selected donors of the day, for each of us and for our world.

Today's Prayer

  • Almighty and ever-living God, you invite us deeper into your world, your people, your Lent. May this time be one of outward focus; seeking you in those we often ignore. Help us live a Lent focused on freedom, generosity, and encounter. Give us hearts hungry to serve you and those who need what we have to give. Amen.


Donor of the Day

  • Mrs. Angela (Spitalieri '95) Ianiro

Thought for the Day

From the writings of Blessed Basil Moreau, founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross:
  • Now that the foundation has been laid, we must carry on this work of providence, help it reach its goals and cooperate with whatever designs God may have for it. (Letters)
The thoughts for each day are taken from Gravitating Toward God, compiled by Joel Giallanza, CSC, and published by the Holy Cross Institute at St. Edward's University, 3001 S. Congress Ave. CMB 757, Austin, Texas 78704-6489 USA
