Update February 19, 2021

Dear Parishioners,  

The Lenten season is once again upon us and it was such a blessing for me and Fr. Tomas to dispense Ashes and Holy Communion to so many of you on Wednesday.   


One of our traditions at Holy Cross during Lent is the devotion of the Stations of the Cross. Since we are unable to offer this devotion at our Church at this time; you will have an opportunity to pray the Stations of the Cross with many of our parishioners on the Zoom platform. Starting this Friday, February 19 at 7 pm until Good Friday, Friday, April 2 at 3 pm we will be praying the Stations of the Cross and immediately after we will pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy along with the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament every Friday. Please contact Makiko Morelli at mymorelli@hotmail.com and she will send you a Zoom invitation a link and other details on how to join the prayer services.  


Your tax receipts for 2020 will be ready for pick up on Sunday, February 21. You will be able to get them after you leave the church. The tax receipts that are not picked up this Sunday will be mailed out next week.  


Please bring your intact used eyeglasses (no cases or loose lenses) to our collection at the Parish Office on Monday to Friday Feb. 22-26 during office hours, or Holy Cross church lobby on Sunday Feb. 28 from 11:00 to noon, for the vision-impaired in poor countries. Sponsored by the Third World Eye Care Society of Canada (twecs.ca) and the Knights of Columbus, who thank parishioners for donating 113 eyeglasses in 2020. 


Fr. Chris
