Holy Door

Holy Hour for the Family Wednesday 7:00 PM


Join us in prayer for the family at 7 PM, Wednesday Feb. 24th. The Holy Hour is being sponsored by the Diocese of Trenton as part of a series of pilgrimage Holy Hours at each of the churches in the diocese privileged to have a Holy Door of Mercy.

Media, lobby groups and legislative initiatives assault the traditional family on all sides. Moreover, the frantic pace of overly scheduled lives, the increasing burdens of long-term illness and the changing economic landscape can exacerbate tensions inside the home.

Drawing strength from the Holy Family and with support from like-minded believers, our families can not only survive, but thrive as living witnesses to the power of faith lived in a broken world. Let us join together and pray for God's help.



Insignias Ready For Holy Door Year of Mercy


Exterior of Holy Cross Church's Holy Door for the Year of Mercy is ready. A 3D printed papal insignia has been affixed above the entry to the door with two simple wooden crosses to signify each of the doors. 

Inside the church, smaller papal and episcopal coat of arms have been displayed along with information on the Year of Mercy, the significance of the Holy Door and the stipulations for receiving indulgences.

The door will be opened with a liturgical celebration at mass this weekend.
