AT HOLY CROSS THIS PAST WEEK: The flat roof on the garage behind the rectory, and attached to the school, was replaced and new doors were installed on the five garage stalls. The old roof leaked in at least four places. The Tuesday Toilers have been seal-coating the asphalt driveways. Electrical repair work from the August lightening strike in church is continuing.
                       PERPETUAL EUCHARISTIC
                                     ADORATION NEWS
Mother Teresa of Calcutta wrote, "The time you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the best time you spend on earth. Each moment you spend with Jesus will deepen your union with HIM, and make your soul everlastingly more glorious in Heaven, and will bring you peace here on earth. Perpetual Adoration is the most beautiful thing you could ever think of doing." Jesus is inviting you to visit Him in the Adoration Chapel. The Adoration Chapel is located in the convent of Holy Cross. Open hours: Tuesday 4:00 a.m., Friday 5:00 p.m. and Saturday 1:00 p.m. For more information call 763-788-4729 or 612-781-4806.
