Holy Cross is a community of faith that values both tradition and the present, scripture and reason, questions and diversity, wonder and—above all—love. We are continually discovering, learning, and growing individually and together.
We welcome everyone, no exceptions. We’d love to welcome you. And when we do, we hope you will join us in making Christ visible in God’s community.
There will be no Wednesday Eucharist on November 23
