In the past, generous parishioners have come forward to make a donation in honor of, or in memory of a loved one, allowing us to purchase such things as the Pascal Candle. We have recently purchased new vestments which were greatly needed.
If you are interested in making such a memorial, please contact Anne Johnson in the parish office, 663-2244.
If you wish to purchase a memorial card for a deceased loved one or friend, or an honor card to commemorate a special occasion for a relative or friend, please call the parish office for more information or stop by, Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM until 8:00 PM or on Saturday between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM.
Votive Lights at Shrine in the Grotto
Votive lights are now available (to burn for a week) for your intentions or in honor/memory of a loved one. The offering is $10.00. Just call the office, 663-2244 to schedule the week you would like.
Memorial and Honor Cards
Our Parish has two cards available which indicate that a gift or donation has been made to Holy Cross Church in a person's name. One of the cards is appropriate on the occasion of the death of a relative or friend. (A family may wish to indicate in the obituary that donations may be made to the Holy Cross Church Memorial Fund or the Holy Cross Building Fund.)
The second card is appropriate for a special celebration - an anniversary, a birthday, etc. or simply to make a donation in the name of another, to honor that person. The donation can also be designated to either of the funds mentioned above and can be obtained from the parish office.
Gifts of Bread, Wine and Candles
Contact the parish office to make an offering for the sanctuary candles in the church or convent chapel for a particular week. Also, offerings can be given for the bread and wine used in Mass for a particular week. The person or occasion and the person giving the offering will be listed in the bulletin for the given week.
School Memorial Fund
Other remembrances can be made through this fund which provides memorial cards, thinking of you cards, as well as Christmas and Easter cards. These cards may be obtained at the parish office or school.
Church Memorial Fund
Donations to the Holy Cross Church Memorial Fund are used for special needs not covered by ordinary parish funds. Gifts of $100 or more are noted on the benefactors plaque mounted near the north entrance of the church. Contact the parish office.
Third Phase of Church Building Fund
(Addition and Parish Center)
Donations to the Holy Cross Building Fund may be given directly through a pledge to be fulfilled over 4 years or in memory of a loved one at the time of their death. Gifts of $240 or more are noted with an engraved commemorative stone or medallion in the courtyard. Contact the parish office for more information and to receive a pledge card.
