Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


                                           James writes:
The harvest of justice is sown in peace. A just society does not arise out of murder, envy, lying, greed - all those actions and attitudes that destroy peace among us and within us.

What are you doing within yourself and in your family to promote the conditions for peace and therefore justice?

                     ADORATION NEWS

He states: "Every holy hour draws the world and everybody in the world closer to CHRIST, and lifts up the whole world up to GOD THE FATHER for His blessing."
