Welcome to Campus Ministry
Our Lady of Holy Cross College!

Campus Ministry Poster

Welcome to Our Lady Of Holy Cross College and Campus Ministry. I am Fr. John Lydon, the Chaplain and Campus Minister. I am a member of the Order of Preachers, commonly known as the Dominicans.

The founder of the Order is St. Dominic de Guaman. You will see me wearing a white habit, the traditional Garb of all the friars of the Order.

The Campus Ministry Office is located on the First Floor near Classroom 15. Campus Ministry offers a variety of ways to grow intellectually, emotionally and especially spiritually.

But let's not forget the physical. We are body and spirit!

Let us build on the past, and vision for the future...

'Be the change you want the world to be.'  Ghandi

Algiers Food Bank Collections

Many thanks to our OLHCC Faculty, Students and Staff for contributing all year to the empty Algiers Food Bank. We contributed 42 large boxes of food thus far and this truly reflects the "servant leadership" mission of everyone here at the college who so generously donated to the hungry in our neighborhood.

Jesus tells us: "For when I was hungry, you gave me food; I was thirsty and you gave me drink..." Matthew 25: 35



Our Lady of Sorrows


This beautiful statue of Our Lady of Sorrows inspires all who pray before her in the Mater Dei Chapel.
