Children from Holy Cross Parish and/or Holy Cross School, grades 2-6, may choose to participate in our Children's Mass Choir. We sing once a month during the school year at a weekend Mass. (We rehearse in the lower level about 45 minutes before the beginning of Mass.) Our job is to joyfully bring the congregation into the spirit of praise during the celebration of the Mass!
All 5th and 6th graders have the opportunity to participate in band at Holy Cross. Each band rehearses 1-2 times each week at the end of the school day. Students choose their own instrument with input from the band director, and stick with it throughout the semester. Both bands have a performance at the end of each semester in the Holy Cross gymnasium.
We welcome Curtis Martin, founder and CEO of FOCUS campus ministries and Father Jarrod Lies, pastor of St. Francis of Assisi parish who will inspire us and give us practical helps in changing our faith from 'maintenance' to be 'missionaries'. Bring your questions for our esteemed panel: Curtis Martin, Fr. Jarrod Lies, Fr. John Jirak, pastor of Church of the Magdalen; Renee Riter, Stewardship Coordinator at Church of the Blessed Sacrament; Kim Scripsick, Director of Parish Advancement at Our Lady of Lourdes, Pittsburg. Joe Dellasega, The Dellasega Group will facilitate the discussion.
