From the Pastor

Dear Parishioners

Dear Parishioners,

     Last Monday, I called a fellow priest on his birthday. We hadn’t   gotten together for breakfast since 1982! He said: “Now, we are trapped like rats.”

     The current health crisis affects even the smallest things in our lives.  Yet our faith is still strong as we know that God is with us. Each day, we are recording Mass for you at Holy Cross. Right now, we are unable to provide it live. However, it is put up on our YouTube account very quickly.

     Go to this address: https://www.youtube.com/user/holycrossrochester

Scroll down to the second row and look for the most recent video at the very left and click on it.

     We hope to resume live streaming very soon. Keep watching our Website and Bulletin for information. 

     I wish to thank several volunteers who helped to sort our deposit bottles and cans and put them in storage for later pickup by Ridge Nickelback. As you know, each nickel helps our Boy Scouts.

     We have noted also an increase in deposits to our clothing bin which helps the Food Pantry. Many people are cleaning out their closets while they are stuck at home. Thanks to all who have helped in this way. 

     We are accepting donations of food for Easter Baskets. Food may be dropped off when you come for adoration on Wednesday 1:00 to 5:00 PM or Saturday 8:00 to 9:00 AM. Please consider cleaning out your food cupboards and bringing in non-expired food.

     Thanks to all who have dropped off or mailed envelopes. The bills keep coming. Online giving may be done at this link: https://www.holycrossrochester.org/index.php/Onlinegiving

     Thank you for your support of our parish! I miss you all as I look out over our empty parking lots. God bless you.

     Sincerely,

     Father Gagnier
