Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


Jesus could spot a hypocrite a mile away, especially when the person was trying to misuse his authority to lord it over others. Jesus distinguished between what they taught and what they did, reminding His listeners that the greatest teacher is one who serves others, not the one who seeks to dominate. Lots of voices try to get your attention as Election Day comes around. Which ones belong to people who truly want to serve your communities?

                   PERPETUAL EUCHARISTIC
                              ADORATION NEWS

THE HOLY EUCHARIST is the continuation of Christ's Incarnation on earth, where the same Jesus born two thousand years ago in Bethlehem is as truly present with us now as He was then. He came quietly and hum- bly. Now our quiet and humble Jesus is hidden in the Blessed Sacrament. Our faith prompts us to visit and adore Him. Your sacrifice of time spent in Eucharistic Adoration is of more value than all the gifts in the world.

Visit Jesus in the Adoration Chapel located in the convent of Holy Cross. Open hours: Tuesday 4:00 a.m., Tuesday 11:00 a.m. and Saturday 1:00 p.m. For more information call: 763-788-4729 or 612-781-4806. Thank you.
EVERY FRIDAY during the month of November there will be Polish Mass and Devotions (Wypominki) in Church at 7:00 p.m.
FATIMA PRAYERS and the ROSARY are recited every Tuesday after 6:45 a.m. Mass. All are welcome to participate.
 LET US REMEMBER those who are hungry and in need of food. You can bring food donations when you come to Church or the Rectory during the week. Please make sure to check the expiration dates on the food and no open boxes or bags. Cash donations will also be accepted.
