Easter Basket Brigade – Food for those in Need

Each year we join with other churches in town to collect food for those in need at Easter.  Although we can’t collect food at Mass as we normally would, we can still take donations.  Our church is tasked with collecting kidney beans and toothpaste – you can drop these items outside the church doors on Mon, March 30 or Tue, March 31st, or you can also drop a cash donation in the parish mailbox.

Online Giving During this Time of Church Closings

With the necessary measure of canceling public Masses, we have also lost our main stream of revenue through Sunday offertory collections to pay our bills.  If you are able, you can drop your envelopes off in the mailbox outside of the parish office, you can make an online donation at this link (specify parish on 2nd page), or you can opt to begin making your offerings through Pre-Authorized Giving by filling out this form (last page of the parish registration form).  Thank you for your generosity in helping the parish stay afloat!

*** MARCH 16TH UPDATE: ALL MASSES AND PARISH FUNCTIONS SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE ***  Due to the very real risk of the COVID-19 virus, Bishop Crosby has made the difficult decision to cancel all public Masses and parish functions until further notice.  The Diocese has also made the decision to close the churches for private prayer as well due to public health concerns.  Be assured of our prayers, and stay tuned to this website as well as the parish Twitter and Facebook feeds for further updates.

What about families with young children?

We welcome all families! Children from junior kindergarten to grade 2 are welcome to participate in the Children’s Liturgy Program offered at both the 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Masses. There is no need to pre-register. The children are invited forward at the beginning of Holy Mass and return to their families during the Preparation of the Gifts.

Holy Cross Catholic Parish Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of our parish family. May all who gather know that they are loved, valued and welcomed with open arms.

As we celebrate Your goodness and mercy, help us to be instruments of healing and peace to one another. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
