From the Weekly Bulletin


Holy Cross Chapel is the recipient of a generous donation of books and we will be hosting a book sale during the first two weeks of each month.  Advent and Christmas are nearly upon us and a big discounted book will be great to fill the stockings.  Visit us on the second floor to see this month's offerings!  Selected books will be discounted anywhere from 50-90%

All men are invited to Holy Cross Chapel on Wednesday, December 20, from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. for an evening of spiritual talks, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, Confession, and Spiritual Direction.

If you like to give a special gift for someone, please consider having a Mass in honor of that Special Someone for their Birthday, Anniversary or just because.  There are Masses available throughout the month of February 2018 and beyond!  Read "What does it mean to have a Mass 'offered' for someone?".
