Respect Life Committee: FUNDRAISING
Mother's Day Carnations: On Mother’s Day weekend we have carnations and corsages available after all the Masses. Proceeds go to Montgomery County Right to Life.
Baby Bottle Campaign: Baby bottles are distributed on Mother’s Day, and parishioners are asked to fill them with change to benefit the Gabriel Project. The bottles are returned on Father’s Day. Since the Gabriel Project started in Montgomery County eighteen years ago, more than 1,026 mothers in crisis pregnancies have been assisted. The Montgomery County Gabriel Project Catholic Cluster includes Holy Cross Parish and sixteen other parishes, all currently working together to help 110 families.
Bingo Party: An annual Family Fun Bingo Party is held in October to benefit the Silver Spring Centro Tepeyac Pregnancy Center.
Christmas Cards: In November, Christmas cards with a Respect Life message are available after all the Masses on two Sundays. Proceeds benefit Montgomery County Right to Life.
