Holy Cross Students Will Be Leading Mass This Sunday

November 19, 2014
Students from various grades are leading the parish at Mass this Sunday, November 23rd at 11:00 AM.  All students who wear their uniform to Mass will receive an out of uniform pass!

Please support the school by attending Mass at 11:00 on Sunday.

During the offertory at Mass on Sunday, several students will present the churches from their classrooms to the parish by placing them on the altar steps.  I encourage you to donate your loose change to the classroom churches.  All money collected will be used to purchase the Child Jesus statue.  We will continue collecting for several months, but wanted the children to share their participation in the project by carrying the churches at Mass.
Our junior high choir will also be singing at this Mass.
