Parish Mission Statement

We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you, because by your
Holy Cross you have
redeemed the world!

We witness to the transforming love of God alive in His Word and sacraments,
by lives dedicated to fostering community, welcoming diversity,
working toward
social justice,

and deepening our personal relationship with our Lord and friend, Jesus.

We are committed to growing our church, always considering how we can better
serve and educate

the members of our parish family,

our Mt. Airy neighborhood, and our global community.

In joyful worship we seek to include all, especially the most vulnerable,
remembering that

the face of God is present in each person.

Jhoselyn’s Story

Jhoselyn Correa Needs Your Help

ANGELS AMONG US:  I met Narci and her spirited daughter, Jhoselyn, in November 2020 one Sunday morning at 8:30am outside Holy Cross Parish as they waited for Mass to begin. With smiling eyes (since our faces were covered by masks due to COVID-19 precautions), Narci introduced herself and quickly inquired about receiving sacraments for her eight year old. Narci and Jhoselyn, devout Catholics here from Ecuador, have found a home-away-from-home at Holy Cross as they await surgery for Jhoselyn’s congenital orthopedic malformations. They both attend weekly Bible Study for Kids with Mrs. Barbara Purnell, participated in our Advent Program, and are currently working closely with Darin Williams to ensure that Jhoselyn can receive her First Penance (Feb 27th) and First Communion (Feb 28th) prior to her pending surgery, scheduled on March 3rd. As of January, 27th, the Correa family was in need of just over $10,000, according to a GoFundMe account setup on their behalf, to help cover their medical and living expenses. To learn more about this beautiful family and their inspiring story, please refer to the article below. To donate, visit gofundme.com/f/a-better-life-for-jhoselyn-abigail.

2020 Annual Appeal – Thank You

For Making Our 2020 Annual Appeal a Success

This year has been unprecedented in so many ways. Nonetheless, our courageous and compassionate Holy Cross family has once again come together to do the unprecedented. Thanks to so many of you who have faithfully contributed to the 2020 Annual Appeal, we had record levels of participation and contributions this year.

Your generosity will allow us to better connect with you, our church community, through technology. By early 2021, we will be able to offer real-time live streamed Masses, weddings and other church events. Thank you for making this vision a reality.

Merry Christmas and may Our Lord continue to bless you abundantly in the new year!

Peace & Love,

Veronica
