Margaret (Marge) Marie Chodak Streb Scholarship

Established by her husband Arthur in 2006

The annual award is a minimum of $1,000 per year for each of the four years of high school. Any eighth grader from Holy Cross Parish who desires to attend a Catholic high school, is eligible.

The following criteria is used to determine who should receive this Scholarship:

  1. Each candidate must write a brief (one page) essay on why they believe they are qualified for this award and why they want to attend a Catholic high school.
  2. Application Deadline: and should be sent into the Parish Office Attn.: Carl Masters by March 2, 2020!
  3. The student who is awarded the Scholarship should possess some of the same virtues as Marge including, but not limited to:
  • A strong desire to achieve in school, in sports, or in other special interests
  • A positive and spirit-filled life
  • The ability to work with others
  1. The award is for excellence in effort, determination, virtue, and team building.

The Selection Committee is made up of the Pastor of Holy Cross Parish, members from the CYO Athletic Board and Mr. Arthur Streb. Using information from the essay and input from the leadership of Holy Cross Parish, the Committee will choose one of the candidates to receive the Scholarship.

Because Marge was so involved in the Parish Sports Program, the award is given at The Annual Holy Cross Sports Banquet each year.

Scouts

Since 1952, Cub Scout Pack 222 has provided young boys of Holy Cross an opportunity to build positive character, leadership skills, and personal fitness. Through their passion for the outdoors, Pack 222 provides multiple outings year around to provide the boys with a positive and supportive Scouting experience. Pack 222 meets on Wednesday at 6:30 PM in Beacon Place. Any questions can be directed to Thomas Richards, the Pack Cub Master, at g13net@gmail.com or 585- 732-7276.

We are Holy Cross Girl Scout Troop 61046. We are a multilevel troop with Daisies, Brownies, and Juniors from grades Kindergarten through 5th grade. We meet twice per month on Tuesday evenings at Beacon Place. From crafts to STEM activities and field trips to holiday parties and service projects, the girls are busy earning badges and having fun! Any questions can be sent to Kelly Thompson, Troop Leader, at kct298@gmail.com


The objective of all of these groups is to enable our young people to develop and grow a personal relationship with Jesus.
