Archbishop Nelson. J. Pérez invites the clergy and faithful of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia to

**Please check the News/Events Page (under “Our Parish” tab above) for any new information during these times of suspended parish activities.
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!
Our Lady of the Holy Cross!
Pray for us!
