The Holy Cross Education Foundation is very grateful to be selected to receive a 2020 United Thank Offering (UTO, little blue boxes) grant. Sponsored by the Episcopal diocese of Minnesota the grant will provide a significant portion of the construction costs for a concrete cistern on the Holy Cross Anglican School property.
The project goal is to build a 34,000-gallon rebar-reinforced cistern to provide clean water reducing the feeding program’s dependence on the unreliable public water system and saving money for other yearly expenses at the school.
In the future the concrete cistern top will provide the foundation for a multipurpose building to be used as a venue for assemblies and chapel services, community meetings, classrooms, hurricane shelter and the first Anglican church on Ambergris Caye. Plans are being made for a full-time priest to lead this faith community where every member will be empowered to find their place of ministry, to discover, develop, and use their God-given gifts and talents.
