Student Life

The Purple Patcher

The Purple Patcher, the Holy Cross yearbook published annually by students, is a creative attempt at depicting the unique personality of Holy Cross, with a special section on the graduating class.

The yearbook is staffed entirely by Holy Cross students and provides training and opportunities for participation in photography, layout, sales, promotion, editing and business management.

The yearbook office is in operation throughout the school year. Students interested in joining the staff are encouraged to contact the editor or the Assistant Director for Student Programs.
