Holy Cross Mission Statement

Called by God through Baptism, empowered by the Holy Spirit,
formed by the Word, nourished by the Eucharist,
we gather together in our diversity as a community of Faith,
worship and service, to share with others the love of Jesus Christ our Risen Lord.

May 1, 2010
St. Joseph, master carpenter and builder, pray for our parish community at Holy Cross.
Inspired by your example of faithful love for Mary and Jesus, and with the support of your people, may we continue to serve God faithfully, work together to build up God's kingdom, and be the people our Lord Jesus calls us be.
Amen

- Msgr. J. Kenneth Rush -
