For our September 11 125th Anniversary Banquet, seating will be in the order reservations are received.  Your name, table number and menu choice will be at the door at Cedars Hall on the day of the banquet.  Tickets will not be mailed.  Parishioners are encouraged to make their reservation as soon as possible.  

A photo history of Holy Cross will be shown at the 125th Anniversary Banquet.  We are looking for photos taken 30 years ago and earlier.  If you have a photo that you would like to share, please contact the parish office.  Your original photo will be returned.

The Anniversary Banquet is being held at St. Maron’s because Cedars Hall can accommodate 100 more guests than we can at Holy Cross.  Also, the Anniversary Committee would like to enjoy the event.
