Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


There is some strength in numbers, Jesus seems to say. Get together with others when you need something and pray together for it. You will get it from the Father. There is something in the act of acknowledging a need to others, articulating clearly what it is, then enlisting their support in placing your petition before God that makes you sure of a response.

Think about it!

                                   ADORATION NEWS

" "Come to Me, all you who are weary, and I will refresh you," (Matthew 11 :28). Life at times becomes very difficult for all of us, and we need Jesus to comfort us. He wants very much to help. He wants us to turn to Him.. It is by prayer that we welcome our Lord into our lives.

Visit the Adoration Chapel, and offer to HIM all the praise and love. Let us offer our whole being.

The Adoration Chapel is located in the convent of Holy Cross. Open hours: Tuesday 3:00 a.m., Thursday 5:00 p.m. and Friday 11 :00 p.m. For information call 763-788- 4729 or 612-781-4806. Thank you.
