Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross

ON HALLOWEEN children are invited to the Rectory and Convent for treats from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. Please go to the side door of the Rectory and front door of the convent. Thank you.
ALL SAINTS VIGIL MASS - The number of people attending the Vigil Mass for All Saints Day (the late afternoon Mass on Halloween) has continued to decrease the last couple of years. Since it appears that most people prefer to be home on Halloween, our holy day Masses will only be on Friday, November 1. No Vigil Mass on Thursday.

                    PERPETUAL EUCHARIST
                              ADORATION NEWS

Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration is simply our response to Jesus' love for us. Our communal worship at Mass should go with our personal worship of Jesus in Eucharistic Adoration in order that our love may be complete. We need not be afraid to go directly to Jesus in the Adoration Chapel.

Jesus said "No one who comes will ever reject."

Visit Jesus in the Adoration Chapel located in the convent of Holy Cross. Open hours: Thursday 4:00 p.m., Friday 5:00 p.m. and Saturday 1:00 p.m. For more information call 763-788-4279 or 612-781-4806. Thank you.
