“COINS FOR CRIBS” is an Advent outreach project at Holy Cross.  As we prepare to celebrate the Birth of Baby Jesus at Christmas, our parish will again collect coins during Advent that will be used to buy baby cribs.  The money collected will be given to “Cradle of Hope” - a non-profit organization that works with mothers and infants in crisis.  All coins received in the weekly collection plate will be given to this project.  Bring extra coins to Church.  If you prefer to give dollars or a check put your gift in an envelope marked “Cradle of Hope.”  This project will begin next weekend November 29 & 30.  Thank you!

BAKE AND CRAFT SALE - The English Altar and Rosary Guild Bake and Craft Sale will be December 6 & 7.  ALL MEMBERS are asked to please bring 2 baked items.  Ladies will be in Kolbe Center to receive your baked goods or craft items on Saturday from noon to 5:00 PM and Sunday morning.  PLEASE share your time and talent and help make this a successful sale.  Roses 105, 106 & 107 will work the Bake and Craft Sale.


Please remember Holy Cross Parish

in your Will.
