Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


Samuel was sleeping the deep sleep of a young man when the Lord called to him. Even though he was sleeping in the temple, Samuel did not recognize whose voice it was. He needed the wisdom of Eli, his teacher, who helped him understand what was happening and how he could respond.

 Who are your teachers who help you recognize the voice of God calling you to yourself? Honor them with gratitude.

A special "thank you" to parishioners who continue to make regular pledge payments. Thanks also to all who give "extra gifts" in the yellow envelopes each month. To reach our goal, we need new pledges and additional gifts. If you were unable to give a gift or make a pledge in the past, please consider helping at this time.

The yellow envelope in the packet mailed to your home can be used for gifts and/or pledge payments.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE who saved aluminum cans. We have reached the goal needed for new tables and chairs in Kolbe Center! We ask you now to keep saving aluminum cans. The money raised from recycling the aluminum will go towards the "Continuing Our Tradition" Campaign. Bags of aluminum cans can be put in the containers by the doors of the church or by the garages behind the rectory. Thanks!!

HOLY CROSS YOUTH GROUP - The new Holy Cross Youth Group will have a "Kick-Off" Pizza Party TODAY, January 19th at 5:00 p.m. in Kolbe Center. Anyone ages 12-18 years old is welcome to attend. If you need more information, please contact Liz McKie at 763-717-2151.

Today the readings seem to be about the Lord's call, and the Disciples response. The Disciples asked Jesus, "where are you staying?" Today we do not have to ask Jesus "where are you staying", as the Disciples did. We know we have Jesus present and exposed in the Adoration Chapel. Visit the Adoration Chapel - Jesus is calling.

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

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