Holy Cross Ministries serves low-income children ages 0-12 years old in Park City and provides the only Parents as Teachers home-visiting program in Summit County
In 2000, Sister Mary Ann Pajakowski, CSC, identified a need in Summit County to provide out-of-school-time academic and enrichment activities for underserved children who couldn’t access the high cost extracurricular activities available in Park City. Holy Cross Ministries has been providing education programming ever since, adapting to the evolving needs of the community. To this day, Sister Mary Ann is still the Director of the Education at HCM, and oversees each of the following programs:
HCM works in collaboration with the Park City School District to provide quality out-of-school-time programming for children in Summit County at Jeremy Ranch Elementary School, McPolin Elementary School, and Parley’s Park Elementary School.
HCM provides early education programming for children ages 0-3 yeras old through the School Readiness Program; which is composed of a home-visiting component, and a classroom for 3 year olds.
