Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


Moses, the great leader of the Old Testament, reminds people that the commandments of God are not to be found "up in the sky" but rather are written in their hearts. God's law is embedded in you when you are born.

This week, spend at least 10 minutes a day in prayer that you may give the voice of God an opportunity to be heard in your heart.

PLEASE KEEP saving aluminum cans. The money raised from recycling the aluminum will go towards the "Continuing Our Tradition" Campaign and your help makes a big difference! Bags of aluminum cans can be put in the containers by the doors of the church or by the garages behind the rectory.
