Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


The disciples were terrified of being identified with Jesus and killed, so they hid out together behind locked doors. But that didn't stop Jesus. He simply appeared and offered them His peace to dissolve their fears. He will do the same for you. When you're shrinking from life's joys and challenges because you're afraid, look for Him. He will come to you and bring you His peace.
