Honoring Our Fallen Heroes at Christmastime

December 20th, 2013 by smorriss


On Dec. 14, volunteers from the Holy Cross Club of the Capital Region joined Boston College alumni at Arlington National Cemetery to place wreaths at the graves of deceased Crusaders and Eagles.  This joint event, part of a national “Wreaths Across America” effort, aimed to honor our fallen heroes. Through the on-campus research of Rev. Robert Keane, S.J., director of Special Projects in Mission, 15 Holy Cross alumni were identified as being interred at Arlington. If you know of alumni who are buried at the National Cemetery, please contact the Alumni Relations Office at or 508-793-2483.

On a cold and blustery Sunday, when most students were inside studying and keeping warm, it was hard to miss Allison Rancourt ’17 of West Stewartstown, N.H.; Mark Lies ’17 from Greenwood Village, Colo.; and Diana Hurtado ’17 from Tucson, Ariz., standing outside the Hogan Campus Center in their fancy black dresses and duds. The trio was waiting for their ride to Boston, where they and other members of the Holy Cross Chamber Singers had been invited to perform at a private party. The group contains about 20 members and is directed by David Harris. Photo by Suzanne Morrissey
