The New Covenant community received the recent news from Holy Cross with sadness. We are sorry to see the closure of the school, which has long been a visible part of the Lynchburg community. We know that you are invested in your school, that your family will be dislocated, and that your children may be very upset at the prospect of changing schools.
I have been at New Covenant for 21 years, and one of the early acquaintances I made coming to Lynchburg was the head of school at Holy Cross, Mr. John Jones. We had a warm professional relationship, and we shared many lunches together to talk about our schools and the things we held so deeply in common. I have spent hours in your gymnasium and on your soccer fields, and appreciated much about your school community over the years. The Gaels were always a cross-town rival for our sports teams, and gave us their best. The school will truly be missed.
