Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


The Pharisees didn't approve of Jesus. They especially objected to the fact that he hung out with the "wrong crowd." Associating with tax collectors was not something they'd ever do. But Jesus set them straight - He had come to call sinners, not those who made a big deal about their righteousness. Whose side are you on?

Statements of account balances were mailed this past week to all who are currently paying on a "Continuing Our Tradition" pledge. Pledge statements will be mailed twice a year - June and December.

If you are making a semi-annual or annual payment on your pledge, or plan to give a second year gift, please consider doing it now. The more we can pay on our loan now, the less interest we pay. Thank you!
