PARISH ALMSGIVING PROJECT - Thank you for your generous donation of socks for men, women and children for Sharing and Caring Hands.  Next weekend, March 8 & 9, we will be collecting breakfast food for St. Joseph’s Home for Children.

SOUP SUPPERS -  You are invited to join the English Rosary Guild for delicious Soup Suppers served on the Wednesdays during Lent from 4:30 to 7:00 PM in Kolbe Hall.  Enjoy home-made soup, bread, dessert, coffee or milk.  Adults $4.00, children $2.00.  This week  Vegetable Beef Barley will be served.




JESUS could have limited HIS presence only to the celebration of the Mass, but HE didn’t.  HE wanted to make a permanent dwelling among us.  Day and night JESUS dwells in the Blessed Sacrament because of HIS infinite love for us.


Archbishop Sheen stated, “The extraordinary evils of the world must be overcome with the extraordinary good of the Eucharistic Adoration.


Visit the Adoration Chapel.  Open Hours:Tuesday:  10:00 AM, 11:00 AM & 12:00 noon and Thursday: 2:00 PM & 3:00 PM

SUNDAY SCHOOL/NURSERY - We invite you to bring your child(ren) to Holy Cross’ faith-filled Sunday School/Nursery Program every Sunday during the 10:00 AM Mass thru May.  We’d love to have you join us.  The nursery is for infants and the Sunday School is for children age 2 1/2 to 7.  Bring your child(ren) to the Pioneer Room (lower level of the school - alley entrance).  If you have questions or would like more information please call Alan Kulz at 651-634-0866.

ANNUAL CATHOLIC APPEAL - Our help to make Jesus Christ known and loved. Thanks to the generosity of many parishioners, to date we have gifts totaling $14,924.00 which is 53% of our parish goal of $28,263.00.  Each gift is important to the mission of our Archdiocese; it takes many people to form the Body of Christ.  Holy Cross Parish receives 25% of all gifts made through the parish for our educational programs.  Your gift helps both the archdiocese and Holy Cross Parish. 


ATTENTION 6:30 PM MASS PARISHIONERS - This past Sunday, February 24, we found ourselves without ushers at the 6:30 PM Mass.  Consequently, no collection was taken, resulting in a loss of income for the parish.  In the future, parishioners who attend that Mass are asked to take the initiative and pass the collection basket.  If it is not done at the offertory, it may be taken after communion.  Please help if there is a need.  You don’t have to be a regular usher.  Those who attended the 6:30 PM Mass on February 24 are asked to please put their envelope in the following Sunday.
