After 37 years of ministry at Mission San Buenaventura, then Pastor Msgr. Patrick J. O’Brien readied for retirement. His final major endeavor would be a new school building and multi-purpose hall. A capital campaign intent on raising funds for the new facility began in 1995. With the unrelenting support of the parishioners, the new buildings were completed in the fall of 2000. The students and faculty took occupancy of the beautiful new facility in January 2001.
Today our school community enjoys an award winning state-of-the-art facility. Three stories high, it houses grades Preschool through Grade 8. The multi-purpose hall, now named in honor of the late Msgr. O’Brien, is used for seasonal events such as talents shows, the Christmas Pageant and the Spring Musical.
An Adoration Chapel is availalbe to students and parishioners alike and additional meeting space serves both Holy Cross School and San Buenaventura Mission.
