Lent at Holy Cross
A message from our Pastor
Dear Friends, As we begin the season of Lent this week I want to encourage you to make it the Best Lent You Have Ever Had. PLEASE do something more this Lent. Learn something new from our many programs; learn anew how to pray meaningfully; do more outreach than you have ever done; get to be closer to the Lord than you ever have been. I will be daily praying for you that indeed this will be The Best Lent You Ever Had.
God bless you abundantly,
Rev. Msgr. Yeazel

Lenten Programs & Activities
Bread & Soup Dinner
Ash Wednesday, March 1 following the 5 o'clock Mass
Have you thought about how to enter into the Lenten season? On Ash Wednesday we observe fasting & abstain from eating meats. This year we will be again hosting a simple, lite Soup & Bread meal on Ash Wednesday in Yeazel Hall following the 5pm Mass. Please join us for soup & homemade bread, (spaghetti-o’s for the kids!) Then spend some quiet time reflecting on the Lord at the 7pm Adoration & Benediction... a wonderful way to begin Lent with your Holy Cross family. We will ask for a $5 per person donation with proceeds going to help our Food Donation for the poor.
Parish Mission with Fr. John Collins
March 6-8th | 7pm
What good is God? Why don't prayers work? Why do some people get the best of me? Do I have to love everybody? Come explore these and other questions in a humorous down-to-earth manner with Paulist Father John Collins. Haven't been to church recently? Don't worry! All are welcome. An opportunity for questions and socializing will follow the talks.
If you would like to have a deeper relationship with God and a better understanding of your faith, then join us for Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible. The study includes a series of eight informative and engaging half-hour videos presented by Jeff Cavins. Each video will be followed by a lively group discussion.
