Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


Jealousy has no place in those who do the work of the Lord. Its presence highlights the fact that the one who is jealous is more concerned with himself than with the Gospel. Being the object of jealousy, especially of those in power, can create fear. Paul and Barnabas, however, in such a situation continued to speak the word of God fearlessly. Ask for the grace to do likewise.

CONGRATULATIONS TO ROLAND AND MARY ANN MAKI who are celebrating their 40th Wedding Anniversary this weekend. May God continue to bless them and their loved ones.

Thank you also to all who continue to make regular pledge payments or give additional gifts and memorials. Every gift helps in reaching our goal. The yellow envelope in your packet can be used for gifts and/or pledge payments.
