You know it’s important to teach children to give thanks for God’s many blessings and use those blessings wisely to serve Him. Learning to understand the value of sharing, saving and spending money is a good place to start. Holy Cross has partnered with LCEF to offer the Young Investors Club. For the first 250 accounts opened, we will fund the $25.00 initial deposit. Applications are in the Narthex.
