Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


Peter was a relatively simple man, a fisherman who knew how to find and catch fish but it seems out of his depth when dealing with voices and visions. Yet, as he later struggled to comprehend the meaning of Jesus' death and resurrection, the memory of the message doubtless enlightened his mind and enlivened his spirit. Take time today to reflect on the dreams and experiences that have made you aware of God's loving presence in your life.

Jesus took Peter, James and John up to the mountain to pray. From a cloud a voice  said, "This is my chosen Son; listen to Him." Jesus was a Man of prayer. If prayer was so important to Jesus, it must also be important in our lives.
