Come to Eucharistic Adoration

We will continue with Eucharistic Adoration here at Holy Cross on Wednesdays from 1:00 until 5:00 PM.

I encourage all who will attend remember “safe distancing” while in church and that prayer at this time is extremely important and necessary.

May you all remain healthy and safe during this world pandemic crisis.

God Bless you all.

Mary Jo DiNoto, Pastoral Associate

A Prayer for Spiritual Communion

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



Holy Thursday 2022 Eucharistic Adoration

You may pray this prayer for each parish you visit and continue to pray for the Eucharistic Revival in our parish, our diocese, and our nation.

Prayer for the Revival

My God, I believe, I adore, I hope, and I love you. I beg pardon for those who do not believe, nor adore, nor hope, nor love You. Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, I adore you profoundly. I offer You the most precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges, and indifference by which He is offended. And, through the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Mary, I beg of you the conversion of sinners. Our lady of Fatima, pray for us.


We encourage you to visit three or more local parishes to pray before the Blessed Sacrament in Reposition.

Lenten Soup Supper On-The-Go

Friday, April 1, 2022 5:30 - 7:30 PM Holy Cross Parish Center

Based on the l983 Code of Canon Law, the following are the regulations for Lent:


Refrain from eating meat at all meals on that day.

All persons who are 14 years of age or older are bound by the law of abstinence. Ash Wednesday is a day of Abstinence as are all Fridays during Lent.


Only one full meal. The other two meals small enough that, together, they do not equal one full meal. The law of fasting binds all persons who are between the ages of 18 and 59, inclusive. Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of Fasting.

Catholics are especially encouraged to perform acts of penance during the season of Lent.

Lenten regulations begin on the morning of Ash Wednesday and continue through Holy Thursday. Good Friday has its own rule of fast and abstinence.



Keep your eye on the upcoming events. There is sure to be one that fits with your idea of a good time.
