If you wish to attend Mass and receive the Eucharist on the weekend, but feel you won’t be able to socially distance yourself properly, we have provided overflow seating in our Parish Center for our weekend Masses. There is a TV in the room that runs our live streaming.
The quality of our LIVE-Streaming of Masses has been greatly improved. Please join us again online. This is a great way to remain connected to Holy Cross.

We certainly ask anyone who is sick/not feeling well that you not come to church in an effort to avoid the possibility of making others sick. You will enter through the North door of church or the Parish Center doors (the other doors will remain locked). There is hand sanitizer available when you enter and everyone is asked to use it upon entering. We ask that everyone be very conscious of social distancing—please stay at least 6 feet apart when in church. Let each of us remember this time is set aside for private prayer and to be respectful of each other, we ask that there be no socializing in church—just social distancing.
The Family Zone April 11 is an interactive newsletter that has live links to YouTube videos and webpages. It takes parents directly to online sites they can use, themselves, to be the primary formators of their children's faith.

Parish Life is how we define fellowship at Holy Cross. It’s the many opportunities to share and enjoy God’s gifts of friendship and fun with other who share the same Christian values.
If you knew Jesus would be somewhere, wouldn’t you go see him? Mass is the central, necessary activity of Christian worship.*
“This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”

We are all facing uncertainty with school, work, and daily life due to Covid-19. To provide Faith Formation in a safe way, we are offering a new home-based program. Our new model is based on the Sunday Mass Gospel Readings and has age-appropriate materials that a family can do together with all their children at the same time! Please follow the links below to learn more about this exciting new way to teach our children about the Catholic Faith and to register for 2020-2021!
We all want to feel needed and valued. Our young people have this same need. Keeping this community of believers involved is a task to which we are all called. They seek a community where their needs are met and where they feel they belong.

Holy Cross School is looking for donations for the Spring cleanup of our playground. After two long winters and a pandemic, the area around the playground has lost a lot of the mulch that makes the playground safe and visibly appealing. There is a group from RIT that is willing to do all the hard work of cleaning and spreading the mulch but we are in need of the mulch. If you are able to donate playground mulch or make a monetary donation for the mulch, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or the school office at 585-663-6533.
