Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


What a wonderful image - the voice of God Almighty heard in a tiny whisper. Our God does not desire to frighten us into submission but rather to awaken our hearts with a soft and intimate whisper of love, encouragement, teaching, suggestion.

Listen! Do you have the quiet in your life you need if you are to be able to hear?

Our Confirmation Candidates are sponsoring an Aluminum Recycling Drive through September to help purchase new tables and chairs for Kolbe Center. The cost for the tables and chairs totals approximately $17,000. Thus far we have $7,140.00. The cost of one table and ten chairs is $600.00. Bags of aluminum cans (pop or beer) can be put in the containers by the doors of the church or by the garages behind the rectory. If you cannot save aluminum, cash donations are also accepted!
