Nestled in a quiet wooded setting and close to Lake Champlain, Holy Cross Senior Housing offers 40 independent apartments for people age 55 years and older. It is located within minutes from Burlington, with extensive shopping, restaurants, cultural events and entertainment. Residents of Holy Cross cultivate beautiful gardens in raised beds, socialize in the outdoor gazebo and access Colchester’s extensive network of walking and nature paths.

Holy Cross Senior Housing opened in 1997 on land donated by Holy Cross Church in the Catholic Diocese of Burlington. The community is designed to meet the needs of older adults with a wide range of incomes. This property offers tax-credit and market-rate homes. Holy Cross also accepts Section 8 vouchers and is a SASH location, with an on-site SASH coordinator.
