Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


Enter My kingdom prepared for you from the beginning.
For I was hungry and you fed me,
I was thirsty and you gave me drink.
I was a stranger and you welcomed me,
Naked and you clothed me.
I was ill and you comforted me,
In prison and you visited me.
When you did it for one of the least, you did it for me.

This is the Good News of Christ, Our King!

CONSOLE JESUS NOW!! In the garden of Gethsemane, Jesus said "My heart is filled with sorrow to the point of death." (Mt. 26:38) Let us console HIM, let us comfort HIM, let us visit HIM in our Adoration Chapel. He came to give HIMSELF to us through the gift of the Holy Eucharist. Let us give praise and thanks to HIM for all He has done for us. Nothing compares to HIS sacrifice!
