The 125th Anniversary year begins next week.  Take time to thank God for the long history of Holy Cross Parish.  Our forefathers made many sacrifices and today we are the benefactors of their hard work.  Also pray for the future of our parish.  We are now challenged to ensure that Holy Cross remains an active and vibrant parish.

Celebrate the 125th Anniversary by participating in the “Honor Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow” fund.  Soon you will be able to order your personalized Brass Plate for the Hall of Faith - the hallway to the south of Kolbe Hall.  Funds raised will be used to offset the cost of some of the activities planned for the anniversary year.  Flyers will be at the doors of the church.

SILENT RETREAT - A silent retreat is being offered for men of the parish on January 14-16, 2011 at Christ the King Retreat Center in Buffalo, MN.  The theme of the retreat is Jesus Conquers Fear.  If spending a few days away to get some perspective on your life sounds interesting, why not call King’s Retreat House at 763-682-1394 or John at 763-537-8052 for information or to make a reservation.

WIDE WORLD MARRIAGE ENCOUNTER - Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage presents a one-day Video Series at Pax Christi Catholic Church in Eden Prairie, MN on January 29th from 9:00 to 4:00.  This is a wildly entertaining and informative marriage event designed to bring hope and positive change to marriages.  It creates better communication in marriages, helps spouses better understand each others’ needs, and rekindles romance in marriage relationships.  Laugh Your Way to a Better Marriage appeals widely to husbands, even those who may typically resist marriage ministry.  For more information or to register call 866-525-2844 or 952-873-2876.
