Prayer Garden Pavers

With the coming of good weather and on the threshold of the month of May, the memorial prayer pavers for our Marian garden will be installed this week. 

Pavers are still available, of course. To save on shipping costs, we generally wait until we can place the order for at least ten.

The Exciting Easter Season

Wow, last weekend was a powerhouse of the Holy Spirit at Holy Cross. Six baptisms, a marriage convalidation, the final Religious Education session for this year's confirmandi and of course, our weekend masses. We eagerly  look forward to our First Eucharists and Confirmation.

It was a joy to gather  this Sunday some of the many babies we have baptized during the past year at Holy Cross and their families. The community prayed for these families and welcomed them with a hospitality gathering at the conclusion of the 10:30 AM mass.

 


Sacramental Life Survey Results So Far

Thank you to those who took the time to complete our survey on Sacramental Life at Holy Cross. So far, 181 parishioners have submitted survey results. We'll keep the survey open for a week or so longer, to give everyone time to transition back from Easter vacation. Please encourage others to complete the survey and forward the survey to those on your social media contacts.

How Would You Rate the New Sound System at Holy Cross?

 

 We have requested an adjustment of the individual speakers throughout the church, especially since the recently installed power surge filter seems to be protecting the system from the automatic resets and amplifier overloads it had been experiencing.

The "add a mass time" responses were open ended and varied. There is  a small, but vocal group who want the 7:30 AM mass back. Another group sees no need to add a mass at this time. A third group suggests resuming the 9:00 AM mass. I will tabulate the responses and report back.
