Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross

"I will pour out my spirit upon all creatures.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
Your old will dream dreams,
Your young will see visions;
Upon the servants and the handmaids
I will pour out my spirit."
Joel 3:1-2

This past Tuesday the "Tuesday Toilers" had the first lunch in Kolbe Hall. The Toilers have done many assorted projects during the remodeling of Kolbe Hall and it was perfect that they used the facility first!

Some of the work remaining includes a new doorway and curbs from the alley into the gym and Kolbe, vision panels will be installed in the doorway from 4th Street, and finishing touches will be put on the elevator entrance.

Everyone is invited to an Open House to see the completed Kolbe Hall and the new elevator the weekend of June 8 & 9.

We still need $236,653.00 to reach our goal. If you would like to give a gift, make a pledge, or give a second year gift, please use the yellow envelope in the envelope packet mailed to your home. Thank you!
