Liturgical ministry is a ministry to God's People who gather in prayer. It finds many expressions of service in our celebration of the Eucharist. All ministries blend and complement one another as we give Glory to God.
To help us put our faith into action and meet our Christian responsibility to help the less fortunate, Social Ministry has several outreach programs geared to meeting the many needs of brothers and sisters in our parish and community.
We minister to those who have lost a loved one, through our Funeral Ministries and our yearly Memorial Mass for those from the parish who have died. Each week at our weekend Masses, we also pray for those who have died during the week.
Music ministry offers unequaled opportunities to share your talent, serve your parish, and live your faith. Won’t you consider using your talent to praise God and encourage others through your music? Come see if music ministry is the call you’ve yet to answer!
We strive to share the light of faith with all parishioners. It is important for all of us to realize that in Christ, we find security, peace, happiness, and a model for daily living. We encourage life-long faith development in these areas, according to the teachings of the church: Christian responsibility, moral values, church doctrine, scriptures, and prayer.
The Holy Cross Athletic Association, as part of Holy Cross parish, provides for the development of the spiritual, emotional, intellectual, social, and physical potential of the youth in our program. It is our goal to encourage the proper balance of competitiveness, teamwork, and sportsmanship which is a reflection of the Catholic values on which our program is based.
Many of our social gatherings are also important fundraisers for our parish. They also provide many opportunities to exercise our call to Christian Stewardship.
