The Summer Mass Schedule begins Memorial weekend, with Sunday Mass at 7:30am, 9:30am, and 11:30am. On Memorial Day, Monday, May 30, Mass will be offered only at 10 am, the Rectory Office will be closed, and there will be no Bible Study.
The Children's Liturgy of the Word (CLW) provides a space for children to hear the word of God in a way they can understand through imagination, movement, and song. During designated Masses, the CLW group is called to the front of the church and given a blessing. The group walks to the art/music trailer to the left of Quinn Hall to hear and respond to a simplified version of the Sunday readings and then returns at the Presentation of the Gifts for the rest of the Mass.
On June 3 (First Friday) there will be Benediction and the Sacred Heart Novena following the 8:30 am Mass. In addition, there will be Eucharistic Adoration to pray for those being ordained in June and for an increase of vocations to the Priesthood and Consecrated Life. After Mass, the Holy Cross Over 50 Club goes to breakfast at the I-Hop on 355 at 10 am.
This will be the last drive until the fall. Please bring non-perishable foods to Lewis Hall after all Masses. Merchandise Certificates for local grocery stores are gratefully accepted in lieu of food. Please be generous as the food pantries experience need while we’re on our summer break. We ask that you label your donated clothing bag.
Everyone is invited to join us for the visit at St. Angela's Hall immediately after the 9:30 am Mass (summer Mass schedule) on Sunday, June 5th. We will meet by the steps in front of Holy Cross church and walk over as a group. For those that wish to join us there, we expect to arrive about 10:45am. All children must be accompanied by an adult caregiver.
For our meeting on Tuesday, June 7, we are reading The Man Who Was Thursday by G.K. Chesterton. Considered GKC’s masterpiece, this wild tale nearly defies description – part mystery, part fantasy, part social commentary – but the novel remains a favorite as a fun and quick read that prompts much discussion. Why not read it and come join in our conversation on June 7?
Please join in celebration of the 25th anniversary of Father Robert's ordination after the 11:30 Mass. Give Father your congratulations and have some fun with fellow parishioners!
