Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


The temptations sound familiar: use the environment to meet your own needs even if it means destroying what was there; put aside your principles to get to a position of power; act with the supreme arrogance that you will not die. These temptations we face even today.

                      Jesus turned away from them. Will you?

THANKS TO THE GENEROSITY of many parishioners, to date we have pledges totaling $12,198.00 or 38% of our assigned goal of $31,759.00. 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. Please return a pledge slip with your response today.
