DIVINE MERCY MASS tonight at 7:30 pm

A reminder that Divine Mercy Mass tonight Friday, March 22, 2024 at 7:30 pm will be celebrated by Padre Martin Scott, of the Servants of Divine Mercy, Diocese of Chosica, Peru, and is presented by Mediatrix Conferences. Please come for Mass and to meet and hear Fr. Martin speak about his Mission.


The Silver Rose will arrive at Holy Cross from March 23 – March 26th.  A special prayer will be held after morning mass on Monday March 25th.  Each year, from early March through mid-December, Silver Roses are stewarded by Knights of Columbus councils along routes from Canada to Mexico. Every stop the Silver Rose makes throughout the pilgrimage is a rosary-centered occasion for Knights, parishioners and community members to pray for respect for life, for the spiritual renewal of each nation, and for the advancement of the message of Our Lady of Guadalupe.


If you wish to donate lilies to decorate our church for Easter, please bring them to the Parish office from Monday, March 25th to Thursday, March 28th.  We also accept cash donations for flowers.
