A Call to Enduring Love
Join with our Holy Cross Parish Family on Sept. 18 & 19 as our parish celebrates Catechetical Sunday and the men and women who have responded to the call to be catechists. Let’s recognize and celebrate the commitment and the many gifts our staff, faculty, and countless volunteers who help to carry out the ministry of catechesis and to proclaim the Word here at Holy Cross Parish.

All Public School Children
All children in our Holy Cross Parish Family have the right to be educated in their faith. Our Faith Formation Program provides faith formation for all students who attend public school. Young children often have questions about God. We will help you answer those questions when you register your children for Faith Formation. We have Sunday School classes for 3, 4 & 5 year olds during the 10 am Mass on Sunday morning, along with classes for children in 1st through 10th grades. We also provide sacramental preparation for First Eucharist and First Reconciliation in the 2nd grade, and Confirmation for Juniors in high school. Faith Formation classes begin in mid-September (see below).
Faith Formation Start-up
GRADES 1–10—Wednesday, Sept. 15: Parent Night, 6:00 – 7:30 pm in church
Sometimes children do not receive First Eucharist (Communion), or Reconciliation (Confession), or even Baptism for various reasons. Don’t let a child you know continue to miss out on faith formation/religious education. Call the Faith Formation Office to register your older children for Baptism or First Eucharist. This is especially important for children as young as 7 up to age 14 who have not been Baptized or received First Eucharist. Sixth through eighth graders who have not received Reconciliation, and other children who have been away from the church are also welcomed back in the Youth Catechumenate. Call Marti in the Faith Formation Office at 468-6554 for more information.
