Parish Center is Being Used for Overflow Seating during the 5:00 PM and 10:00 AM Weekend Masses
If you wish to attend Mass and receive the Eucharist on the weekend, but feel you won’t be able to socially distance yourself properly, we have provided overflow seating in our Parish Center for our weekend Masses. There is a TV in the room that runs our live streaming.
Contact Tracing Mass Card
Beginning the weekend, August 1/2, you are asked to complete a Contact Tracing Mass Card found in the bulletin. The information on this card will be very helpful in the event the parish needs to notify you should a circumstance arise associated with Covid-19.
Please, only one card is needed for those in the same household and you only need to complete the card once; NOT every week. The card asks you to indicate the Mass(es) you attend, and provide your name, and both your telephone number and e-mail address.
Please complete and place in the collection basket. We appreciate your help so that we may do all we can in the best interest of everyone’s health and safety should the need arise. Thank you.
The quality of our LIVE-Streaming of Masses has been greatly improved. Please join us again online. This is a great way to remain connected to Holy Cross.

Wednesdays from 1:00 until 5:00 PM
We certainly ask anyone who is sick/not feeling well that you not come to church in an effort to avoid the possibility of making others sick. You will enter through the North door of church or the Parish Center doors (the other doors will remain locked). There is hand sanitizer available when you enter and everyone is asked to use it upon entering. We ask that everyone be very conscious of social distancing—please stay at least 6 feet apart when in church. Let each of us remember this time is set aside for private prayer and to be respectful of each other, we ask that there be no socializing in church—just social distancing.
Please NOTE: Holy Cross is NO longer holding Eucharistic Adoration on Saturdays at 8:00 AM.
We are bringing back the 8:00 AM Mass at Our Mother of Sorrows Church. All are welcome!
Still open for Confession at 3:30 PM on Saturdays.
The Family Zone is an interactive newsletter that has live links to YouTube videos and webpages. It takes parents directly to online sites they can use, themselves, to be the primary formators of their children's faith.
The Stipend for a Mass Intention is $10.
You can request these throughout the year. The offering is $15 for either Bread, Wine, or Candle. These requests must be submitted in writing with check or cash payment. Please include the following information: Person to be memorialized, your name, phone number and the date requested. If you would like an acknowledgment sent, please include the name and address of the recipient for the card.
Thank you for your patience and working with us to honor our loved ones who have gone before us.

Parish Life is how we define fellowship at Holy Cross. It’s the many opportunities to share and enjoy God’s gifts of friendship and fun with other who share the same Christian values.
My dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
I am writing to encourage your participation in the annual public policy weekend that highlights are advocacy in support of a particular legilative initiative. I ask that you offer your personal support this year for Nourish New York

We cannot let this initiative die! Learn more, and sign the petition in support of NOURISH NEW YORK at https://www.dor.org/petition/

Our e-mails are still available and we will do our best to answer you as quickly as possible. However, it is with sadness that I share, with such closings as school and office, we have had to furlough some employees. Please pray for all affected by this pandemic in one way or another.
May God Bless you and keep you and your families safe and healthy. Peace.
