The Memorare to Saint Joseph

Remember, O most pure spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary, my great protector, Saint Joseph, that no one ever had recourse to your protection, or implored your aid without obtaining relief. Confiding therefore in your goodness, I come before you. Do not turn down my petitions, foster father of the Redeemer, but graciously receive them. Amen.

Act of Spiritual Communion

“My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament.  I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul.  Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.  I embrace You as if You were already there, and I unite myself wholly to You!  Never permit me to be separated from You!  Amen!”

The 2021 Catholic Charities Appeal

“Giving Hope to All”

The Catholic Charities Appeal is a time for our Parish to come together to extend our love, generosity, and concern to those who need it most.  Your support will provide education, food, shelter, and medical assistance.  Please prayerfully consider showing your support to this great call for action.  Families and individuals impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic need our help now more than ever.  Taking care of those in need is one of the important things we can do as Catholics.  Help the Archdiocese of Philadelphia reach the needed $12.5 million goal!  Thank you in advance and may God greatly bless your generosity!

Dear Friends,

I am grateful for the support and generosity of Holy Cross parishioners as we now emerge from pandemic restrictions.  Know that you and your intentions are always remembered in the Masses that I celebrate and the prayers that I offer everyday!  Please continue to remember Holy Cross in your planned giving.  Parish operations and services depend upon the weekly offerings.  Electronic giving always remains an option and I am grateful to those who have chosen this.  Please click the icon on the bottom of this page for more information.  Weekly envelopes, of course, may still be mailed-in or dropped-off.  I am inspired by our many wonderful Holy Cross parishioners and Holy Cross School students and faculty!  In these times of transition, let’s renew our trust in God and entrust ourselves anew under the protection and care of Our Lady of the Holy Cross!

Peace!
Fr. Wilson
Our Lady of the Holy Cross!
Pray for us!
