Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


Most of us can surely understand Martha's point. We lead such busy and complex lives that taking time out to relax in the presence of Jesus seems irresponsible. But Jesus sees it differently. He calls her to take time out and acknowledge what is really important.

This week, take 10 minutes every day to experience the presence of your loving God. Then everything else will fall into place.


Goal-                                                                           $1,500,000.00
Total paid to date (pledge payments and additional gifts)      $1,182,366.20
Pledge payments still outstanding                                      $ 259,519.30
Gifts still needed (in addition to pledges)                              $ 58,114.50

Please see Father David's insert in today's bulletin.

Your gifts, memorials and pledge payments are greatly appreciated as we continue to work towards our goal. We are now at the half-way point in our campaign and all help is appreciated. The yellow envelope in the envelope packet mailed to your home can be used for gifts and pledge payments. Thank you!

THANK YOU for continuing to save aluminum cans. The Tuesday Toilers will be taking another load to the recycling center this week. The money raised from recycling the aluminum goes 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.

GOD Himself is my help. The Lord upholds my life. I will offer you a willing sacrifice; I will praise Your Name 0 Lord, for its goodness. (Psalm 53:6,8). The Eucharist is the fruit of our Lord's Passion. Jesus gave up His Body and His Blood on the cross so that He may fill us with His Divine Love each time we receive Him in Holy Communion and visit Him in the Eucharistic Chapel.

The Adoration Chapel is located in the convent of Holy Cross. Open hours: Thursday 2:00 a.m. Friday 10:00 a.m. and Friday 4:00 p.m. For more information call 612- 605-2558 or 612-781-4806. Thank you!
