“COINS FOR CRIBS” is our annual Advent outreach project at Holy Cross.  As we prepare to celebrate the Christ’s birth at Christmas, our parish will collect coins during Advent that will be used to purchase baby cribs.  The coins 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 the 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.”  Thank you!


EUCHARISTIC ADORATION - JESUS IS WAITING!!  Pope John Paul ll called for us to have a personal relationship with Jesus, Our Lord and Savior.


Going before JESUS in the Blessed Sacrament we go before HIM who is with us in person.  Perpetual Adoration helps us feel more personally involved with Christ.


Choose an hour - Open hours: Monday 9:00 AM; Tuesday 9:00 AM and Wednesday 9:00 AM.
