Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


The Eucharist that we share each Sunday is the real presence of Christ among us. His Body is real food and his Blood real drink. We are nourished by Christ each time we partake of the one loaf and the one cup. Our Savior is truly with us when we receive communion.

Just as we are united with Christ in communion, so we are united with one another. As Paul writes in our second reading today: "Because the loaf of bread is one. we, though many. are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf' (1 Cor. 10:17). This union of ourselves with Christ and with one another is brought about by the sacrament we celebrate today.

THE PARISH OFFICE will be closed on Monday, May 30th for Memorial Day. Office hours will resume on Tuesday, May 31st at 8:00 a.m.
