Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


Peter had been profoundly changed by his interactions with the Risen Christ. He gave off a charged energy that effected healing even for those upon whom his shadow fell. Modern medicine is coming to accept that people's recovery can be enhanced by various forms of energy healing. Hospitals with religious affiliations have incorporated such practices happily as a way of reclaiming their heritage.

                                                          Pray for those who are sick.

Bring with you into the sick room the energy of the Risen Christ which was shared with you at your Baptism.
