Upcoming Events

Advent 2016 Mission

This Weekend

Holy Cross will be hosting an Advent Mission “With the Eyes of Mercy” , Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday, December 4, 5, and 6th at Holy Cross Church at 7 p.m. each evening.  Each talk will stand alone, so come all the evenings or the ones that you are able. 

We will kick the mission off on Sunday at 6:00 p.m. in the lower level with a free Chili and Soup Supper hosted by the Knights of Columbus 7279. The mission talks will begin at 7 in the Church.

Sunday - We explore the theme of Mercy in light of the message of Divine Mercy given to us by our Lord through St. Faustina.
Monday - Baptism, Reconciliation and the Holy Eucharist are the Sacraments in which we receive the Divine Mercy. 
Tuesday - We are called to evangelize as Christ did, with the eyes of Mercy.  
 

All are Welcome. The talks are designed for middle-schoolers through adults.  Free childcare for younger children will be available in the lower level.  Please call the rectory at 665-5163 to reserve a place for your child. Confessions will be available at the end of each evening.

Hospitality of the Face and Heart

“A day never passed without Dorothy Day speaking of the works of mercy: feeding the hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, clothing the naked, giving shelter to the homeless, caring for sick, visiting prisoners, burying the dead, admonishing the sinner, instructing the ignorant, counseling the doubtful, comforting the sorrowful, bearing wrongs patiently, forgiving all injuries, praying for the living and the dead.
 
She helped us understand a merciful life has many levels: there is hunger not only for food but also for faith, not only for a place at the table but also for a real welcome, not only for assistance but also for listening, not only for kind words but also for truthful words. There is not only hospitality of the door but also hospitality of the face and heart. As she said, ‘We are here to celebrate Him through these works of mercy.’”
 
Excerpted from the Catholic Education Resource Center.  The original article, “Dorothy Day: Saint & Troublemaker," by Jim Forest ran in Canticle Magazine (Winter, 1998).
