Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross

We ask God the Father to bless you, Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament to sustain you, the Holy Spirit to continue to shower you with His gifts, and our Holy Mother Mary to keep you in her tender care and guide your footsteps.

                    PERPETUAL EUCHARISTIC
                                ADORATION NEWS

Today we sing the Responsorial Psalm, "The Lord is kind and merciful; slow to anger and rich in compassion." Jesus' reign is one of love and mercy. Out of love He came into the world. He reigned in the crib - He reigned from the Cross. Behold the price He paid to win our hearts. Let us spend time with HIM in the Adoration Chapel to praise, honor, and give thanks for all HIS love and mercy.

The Adoration Chapel is located in the convent of Holy Cross. Open hours: Thursday 3:00 a.m., Thursday 5:00 p.m. and Friday 5:00 p.m. For information call 763-788- 4729 or 612-781-4806. Thank you.
CONGRATULATIONS TO LAUREN MYER who was the winner of the "Read-A- Thon" sponsored by the Holy Cross Parish Library. Lauren read the most books and was the recipient of a $50.00 Barnes and Noble Gift Certificate.
