Welcome

Holy Cross Church is a Catholic parish located in Garrett Park, Maryland. We were founded in 1961 when the Sisters of the Holy Cross donated nine acres of land to the Archdiocese of Washington to create a parish and school.

Today, our parishioners come from many areas of Montgomery County, including Kensington, North Bethesda, and Rockville. Our parish school is a Pre-K through 8th-grade community that has been honored with the National Blue Ribbon Award by the U.S. Department of Education. 

Holy Cross strives to be a place of welcome and hospitality for those seeking an encounter with God. Our beautiful campus offers a transition from the mundane and hectic to the sacred as we prepare to enter his presence. We foster a sense of community to help build relationships and friendships among our parishioners who worship and serve together. 

Our parish provides education and sacramental preparation for children and adults and offers opportunities for those who wish to deepen their faith. 

Holy Cross has a proud tradition of service to others through ministries to the poor, the sick, and others in need. We advocate for social justice in our community, state, and nation.
