Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


This is the great feast, the beginning of the Church. Pentecost, the fifteenth day after Easter, brings the Easter Season to an end. This is the day we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit poured out on the world. The Spirit's gifts empower the baptized to go out and fulfill the great commission that Jesus gave to his disciples at the end of Matthew's Gospel: "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you" (Mt. 28:19-20).

This commission is not just given to a few. The Spirit's gifts are not just given to a few. All the baptized are called to fulfill Christ's command; all the baptized are given the gift of the Spirit. Use the Spirit's gifts!


Goal -                                                                                  $1,500,000.00
Total paid to date (pledge payments and additional gifts)    $1,362,328.70
Pledge still outstanding                                                          $ 137,671.30

Thank you to all who continue to give gifts and make pledge payments. We appreciate your kindness.

Even though we do not have a "Gifts still needed" balance at this time, it will not always be that amount. As we become aware of pledges that cannot be completed, any unpaid amounts moved to the "Gifts still needed" column.
