Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


The man who had leprosy just had to tell everyone he met that Jesus touched him and he was cured. Probably he had gone many years without having felt himself lovingly touched. But Jesus had reached out to him despite the law that no one was to do so until the priests had declared him clean. It was overwhelmingly wonderful, not only to him but also to all who heard it and longed for healing.

               Jesus was their hero. Is He yours?
