This registration includes:
All children who will attend public school and be in grades 1-8 next school year.
Children who will be in grade 2 in preparation for First Holy Communion whether they attend public school or Pope John Paul II Catholic School.

Please make use of these opportunities. If you have any questions, please call Sister Donna (evenings) at 612- 789-9168.


Holy Cross has a limited number of paid staff and a huge number of volunteers who are the heart of this parish.

The Funeral Luncheon Committee served the first luncheon on April 10, 1978. Helen Galka was one of three original chairpersons and is still on the job along with a dedicated group of women.

The Tuesday Toilers continue to do many repair and improvement projects around the parish. They work on the grounds, in the church and in our buildings.

We are also blessed to have people who volunteer to teach religion to our children, choir members, lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, ushers, officers of organizations, library volunteers, collection counters, servers, altar cleaners and church decorators, finance council, festival workers, organizers of youth and senior activities, Perpetual Adoration coordinators and volunteers, Wine & Cheese social workers, and volunteers in any capacity.

Our long term care facility, day program and assisted living center is located at 2nd St. at Main St. and our new addition at Rivervillage North and East are both located at 29th Avenue and Randolph St. Many hands would greatly enhance the lives of those folks living in these various facilities.
