From the Pastor

Dear Parishioners

Dear Parishioners,

With school fast approaching, be sure to bring your backpacks on Sunday, August 25 to the 10 AM Mass for a blessing as we look forward to a new year. We are very proud of our great school here at Holy Cross Parish. We do appreciate the help of so many, especially our parents, who make this possible.

See the next column about the Blood Drive sponsored by our parish youth.

The Garage Sale continues after all Masses this weekend in the gym of the school. Thanks to everyone who helped and patronized the sale. We did not want to lose this annual event.

The "Lift High the Cross" Fundraiser continues as does the installation of the 8 new air conditioners in church. Remember that everyone's help is needed! We cannot replace the parking lot unless the money is raised to pay for it. We do not wish to endure another winter with the parking lot in its present condition.

Think about the cost for parking for fifty-two Sundays a year, six Holy Days and all other events when you park. This is one of the “deferred maintenance” items that we must attend to as a parish family.

So far, 247 of our 1,933 households in the parish have helped to replace the air conditioners and the parking lot. See their names on the next page. Thanks to all who are making this project possible for us and future generations at Holy Cross.

Sincerely, Father Gagnier
