During the Open (Green) Phase there are still restrictions in place for health and safety (these are essentially the same as the Restricted (Yellow) Phase).  Note that the Sunday Mass Obligation is still suspended.  You are not required to attend Mass at this time.  Per Archdiocesan Directives, those who are sick or high risk should STAY HOME.  Please see the following video and link: 

Directives for Open (Green) Phase

These Directives are also available for viewing on the New/Events Page

Dear Friends,

As our parish prepares to make a limited return to public Mass with restrictions, I continued to be very grateful and inspired.  The support and generosity of Holy Cross parishioners is indeed uplifting!  Know that you and your intentions are always remembered in the Masses that I celebrate!  Please 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 may still be mailed-in or dropped-off.  Again, I remain grateful to and inspired by our many wonderful Holy Cross parishioners.  Let’s continue to pray for an end to the COVID-19 pandemic knowing for sure that God never abandons His people!

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