Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


The great prophet Jeremiah was told at the beginning of his ministry that God knew what He was doing in calling him. After all, He created him and dedicated him to prophecy so he could trust that God would not abandon him as he stood before councils and kings to speak His truth. What gift have you been given to exercise for the good of the community? When you're true to your calling you too can trust you are under God's protection.

In the Eucharist, JESUS is really Emmanuel, God with us. Our Holy Father, Pope John II, calls us to a personal relationship with Jesus, our Savior. Going before HIM in the Blessed Sacrament we go before HIM who is with us in person. Perpetual Adoration helps us feel more personally involved with Jesus Christ.

The Adoration Chapel is located in the convent of Holy Cross. Open hours: Monday 11:00 p.m., Friday 10:00 a.m., Friday 4:00 p.m. and Saturday 3:00 p.m. For more information call 763-788-4729 or 612-781-4806.
