Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


After September 11, 2001, we understand in a much deeper way what Paul meant when he wrote: Just when people are saying, "Peace and security," ruin will fall on them with the suddenness of pains overtaking a woman in labor, and there will be no escape. Let us heed Paul's exhortation to know ourselves as people of the Light, ready to meet our God face to face at any moment.
