MINISTRIES (Ongoing Minister Opportunity)

All are Welcome! Come and Serve!


Funeral Luncheon Ministry In order to continue this ministry of caring for God’s people here at Holy Cross, we need to ask for help and there are many ways that one can be involved: Pick up food trays from a local store; Set up; Serve; Clean up; and/or Send in a dish of food. We would like to set this up, so that it may not be an overwhelming time commitment for any one person. If you have helped out in the past, if you are able to continue helping in this ministry, or if you would like to start helping, please call the office. (663-2244).

Welcoming Ministry
Seeking parishioners to be part of the Welcoming Ministry. All you need to do is arrive at Mass about 10-15 minutes and stay a few minutes late, stand at the various doors and greet people, wish them a good day, say hello. If they have any concerns, just pass them along to me or any member of Parish Council. The beauty is there are no meetings. You should only be asked to do this once or twice a year.

Join the Holy Cross Posse

We are rounding up a posse to help with parking at Holy Cross. We are looking for women and men, teens and seniors to help direct parking in our parking lots. With the number at Masses and the loss of parking area because of snow, we want to be able to direct people so that every possible parking place is used. Primary, we are looking for teams for before the 5 PM Saturday Mass, the Sunday Masses at 10 AM and Noon. Also we would have a team in the school parking lot before and after the Religion Ed classes on Sunday. That would be from 11-11:30 AM and from 12-12:30 PM. We would like to begin the weekend of January 8/9.

Ideally it would be good to have teams of 3 people. If we have 4 teams per week (16 teams of 3 total), you would only have to do it once a month. We might also use the people for other possible events where parking attendants are need.

If you are interested, please call the Parish Office at 663-2244 and leave your name and phone number or
e-mail hc0008@aol.com.
