June 27/28 From the Pastor's Desk...

My Dear Parishioners,

Welcome to Holy Cross Parish Picnic 2009! We welcome all our parishioners, their family, and friends. A special welcome to all who have come from near and from far - we do hope that you have an enjoyable day and get to relax and enjoy Holy Cross Parish Family hospitality!

A very special "THANK YOU" to our Boy Scout George Blaney, his parents, and fellow scout members who spent so much time and hard work converting the space in the basement of our church into a beautiful storage area with strong shelves to house both parish and school materials. Storage has always been a big problem here at Holy Cross, and George's Eagle Scout project has solved a great problem for us here at Holy Cross parish and school. Thank you again, George, for a job well done and much needed.

I am pleased to announce that Norb and Joan Jadin have accepted the responsibility of chairing our Church renovation project. Essentially they will head the committee to plan, make the renovation recommendations, and oversee the project. If you are willing to work on this committee, please give them a call at 468-1173. The movement of the parish Heritage Room will make our history and all our artifacts much more accessible, not only to us, but also to people who come to visit our historic church and parish. I have a hope that all we plan to do can be done by parish members contributing their time and talent. More about this project as things develop and are proposed. Please note that this project will not use any Sacrificial Giving money but will be funded by contributors to the project. I am most appreciative that a number of parishioners have come forward and have generously given to this project already.

It is difficult to believe that June is coming to an end - how quickly time passes. This coming Saturday we celebrate our freedom by celebrating the birth of our nation, the Declaration of Independence - July 4, 1776. As we watch the oppression in Iran, Iraq and other nations, we can readily appreciate the freedoms that we so often take for granted. Why not say a special pray of thanksgiving to Almighty God and ask Him to continue to "Bless America."

“Oremus pro invicem”
