Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


"Keep your eyes open, for you know not the day nor the hour," Jesus said. Often this is applied to the time of death, but it is also a reminder that our God is present in all the big and little moments of our lives as well. So if you long to see the face of God, stay alert. Catch glimpses of His presence now so that you will recognize His face at the hour of your death.
