Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


In the words of the psalmist used as a refrain at today's Eucharist, all of nature resounds with joy at the presence of God.

The rivers clap their hands,
the mountains shout with joy.

Take at least 15 minutes this week to listen to and learn from the way the natural world reflects its Creator.
