Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


His baptism by John was a commencement movement for Jesus. Here, beside the muddy Jordan River, He experienced the power of the Spirit descending upon Him and He heard in His heart the voice of His Father claiming Him and His mission. It was time to begin the work for which He had been born. Listen!

    What does the voice of God impel you to become?

Today we celebrate the Baptism of our Lord. Jesus was baptized in the Jordan by John. On coming up out of the water he saw the heavens being torn open and the Spirit, like a dove, descending upon Him. A voice came from the heaven, "You are my beloved Son; with You I am well pleased." That Son is awaiting our visits in the Perpetual Adoration Chapel. Adore and visit Jesus in His Sacrament of love.

The Adoration Chapel is located in the Convent of Holy Cross. Open hours: Tuesday 4:00 a.m., Tuesday 11:00 a.m. and Thursday 2:00 p.m.

For information call 763-788-4729 or 612-781-4806. Thank you.
