Most Rev. Archbishop Leopoldo Girelli, Apostolic Nuncio to India and Nepal, released the centennial logo of Holy Cross College on Wednesday, symbolising the mission undertaken by the Sisters of the Cross to empower women.

Declaring open the centennial celebrations in the presence of the Principal Rev. Sr. Christina Bridget, the Archbishop applauded what he termed as the significant contributions and achievements of the college in societal service.

Six projects initiated by the college to commemorate 100 years of service were inaugurated by State Ministers K.N. Nehru and Anbil Mahesh Poyyamozhi and MLA Inigo S. Irudayaraj.

The projects constituted an entrepreneurial skill centre, start of a low-cost medical unit, free education for 100 first-generation learners from the underprivileged section, an enabling platform for start-ups, and an initiative to transform an adopted village to a smart village.

The guests of honour included Rev.Sr. Lourdu Adaikalasamy, Provincial, Sisters of the Cross, Province of Tiruchi; Jacintha Lazarus, Commissioner of Rehabilitation and Welfare of non-Tamils, an alumnae.
