Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


In the religious understanding of the time, an illness or disability was thought to result from sin of the person or his parents. Jesus told the crowd that however they wanted to explain the man's paralysis, He had the power to heal on levels. And He did just that.

                        Where do you most need healing?
                        Ask and it will be given to you.

 Offertory Collection
February 16, 2003........................... $6,583.16

THANKS TO THE GENEROSITY of many parishioners, to date we have pledges totaling $5,553.00 for approximately 25% of our parish goal. Your prayers for the success of the Annual Catholic Appeal and the ministries it supports are still needed, as are pledges and gifts. Each gift is important to the mission of our Archdiocese; it takes many people to form the Body of Christ. No gift is too small. The Appeal, parish assessments, and investment and bequest income combined fund all of the programs and ministries in the Archdiocese. A gift to the Appeal helps support 45 ministries and services that meet the needs beyond parish boundaries. Please return a pledge slip with your response today.
