Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


Jesus was a teacher and He practiced His craft everywhere, even a dinner party hosted by an important member of the community. This was the mission He had been given by His Father and no other consideration was as compelling.

What is your mission?
Ask Jesus to help you be as faithful to yours
as He was to His.

THANK YOU to all the Holy Cross parishioners who have sent cards, gifts and words of kindness during the recent loss of my father in Poland. Your kindness is deeply appreciated. God bless you.
