Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross

WELCOME TO FATHER BERNARD REISER, Pastor Emeritus of Epiphany Parish in Coon Rapids, who is here this weekend to speak at all Masses on the spiritual benefits of Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration. One of the greatest blessings of having the Adoration Chapel is the opportunity to spend time in quiet prayer at any hour of the day. Our Chapel is located in the Holy Cross Convent. You will be invited to consider committing to a specific adoration hour once a week. Please prayerfully consider how Father Reiser's invitation can include you.

From Mother Teresa of Calcutta: On the Cross Jesus said "I thirst". From the Blessed Sacrament Jesus continues to say to each of us "I thirst". He thirsts for our personal love, our intimacy, our union with HIM in the Blessed Sacrament. His longing for us to be with HIM in the Blessed Sacrament is infinitely greater than our longing to be with HIM. If you really want to grow in love go ADORE JESUS.

The Adoration Chapel is located in the convent of Holy Cross. Open Hours: Friday 8:00 a.m., Friday 9:00 a.m., Thursday 11:00 a.m., Saturday 12:00 noon and Saturday 1:00 p.m. For more information call 763-788-4729 or 612- 781-4806. Thank you.
