Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


Jesus gave a special class just for Nicodemus, even though he came surreptitiously in the night so none of his fellow Pharisees would catch him with Jesus. And Jesus challenged him to come into the light for, He said, only those who believe their deeds to be wicked seek out the darkness and hate the light.
                                                      In your work or community,
                                         do you seek to bring your beliefs into the light?
