AN INVITATION - PLEASE contact one of our Pastoral Ministers, Sister Benita, Sister Donna, Sister Priscilla (612-789-9168) or leave a message with the secretary, if your relative (Holy Cross parishioner) is in the hospital, nursing home or has become homebound. It is important to us as a parish to continue to minister to all those who are and have been an important part of the Holy Cross community.

HOSPITALIZATIONS - Did you know that because of privacy laws, hospitals and nursing homes do not call us to report if a parishioner has been admitted, or if a person's condition has worsened? The clergy do not visit hospitals unless a request is made by the family. Please call the Rectory, 612-789-7238, so that we can follow up with a visit and offer the sacraments of healing.
THE ARCHDIOCESE OF SAINT PAUL & MINNEAPOLIS is seeking our assistance in obtaining the names and addresses of Catholic physicians and nurses from our parish.
