Holy Cross Mass of Thanksgiving and Hope!

From the Holy Cross web site ...

Holy Cross School Outdoor Mass of Hope

Sunday, June 22 - 2:30 PM

Outside between the School & Holy Cross Child Center

Come One! Come All!

Beacon of Hope  We will gather to celebrate the 110 years during which this Beacon, Holy Cross School, has brought the Light of Christ to students, faculty, and the whole parish. We will pray for our present students as they take that Light with them to other schools. Our prayers also go with our dedicated faculty, administrators, and staff as they go forth having been touched by the spirit of Holy Cross and having left their mark on us all.

We will celebrate that our school building continues to house ministries of Holy Cross that keep that Light burning: Faith Enrichment, Sacramental Preparation, Tween/Teen Ministry, Scouts, and CYO Sports. With Hope we will look forward to retaining many traditions and creating new ones that keep our youth connected with our parish.

We will celebrate in Thanksgiving the privilege of hosting Summer Adventure for our 3 to 11 year-olds, and in running a Parish PreSchool and Wrap Around Program in the fall.

We will continue to celebrate the blessings and hope that comes from Catholic School Education. Every one of our parish children in Catholic, public, or home-based school is a special treasure. Our mission continues to be to find as many ways as possible to share with them the Beacon of Hope, Jesus Christ.

Join us as we gather at the altar of the Lord to celebrate the Hope of the past, which gives us Hope in the present, and leads to Hope everlasting.
