Welcome to Church of the Holy Cross


Jesus knew that empty words were cheap. Saying something did not make it so. It was in action that truth is revealed. As you take part in the Eucharist, listen to the words you speak. Do they come from your heart? Are they reflected in your life outside the church door? Speak the truth of your beliefs with your actions.

THE ZYGMUNT DANAJ FAMILY extends a sincere "thank you" to the parish staff, relatives and friends for your presence, for your support and love shown during Helen's illness and death. God bless you all.

                                ADORATION NEWS

Let us spend quiet time with JESUS. "Could you not watch one hour with ME?" (Mt. 26:40) When we look upon the Sacred Host, we look upon Jesus. "Indeed, this is the will of MY Father, that everyone who looks upon the Son and believes in HIM shall have eternal life, and I shall raise him up on the last day." (Jn. 6:40)

The Adoration Chapel is located in the convent of Holy Cross. Open Hours: Friday 11:00 a.m. and Saturday 1:00 p.m., also early morning hours are available. For more information call 763-788-4729 or 612-781-4806.
FATHER BERNARD REISER will be at Holy Cross next weekend to speak at all Masses about the benefits of Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration. October marks the 10th Anniversary of our Adoration Chapel. Perpetual Adoration in a parish is not just for a day, a week, a month or a year. Rather it is for always - ongoing, lasting, permanent.
HAPPENINGS BOOKS - The Educational Task Force is selling Happenings Books. Cost is $25.00 per book. There are many coupons for 1/2 price on dry cleaning and car washes (including Central Avenue & Don's), along with fine dining. Call Dennis at 612-788-4209.
