Salesian Missionary Visits Holy Cross

A Second Collection will be taken the weekend of June 28th and 29th for a Diocesan Mission Appeal.

Salesian Missionary Fr. Juan Pablo Abrue-Sime, SDB, will be at Holy Cross to speak at all Masses about the missionary work of Salesian Missions, Inc., a part of the Salesian Society that was founded in 1859 to care for poor and disadvantaged youth.

Today more than 34,000 Salesian Fathers, Brothers, and Sisters work in more than 130 countries staffing 225 orphanages, 216 hospitals and clinics, 850 nurseries, and 3,408 schools.

Please open you hearts and give generously to help this mission. Contributions may be given during all Masses or anytime at the Parish Center Office.

Corpus Christi Eucharistic Procession

Join us Sunday, June 22nd, as we commemorate the Feast of Corpus Christi with a Eucharistic Procession following the 10:00 a.m. Mass.

The purpose of this feast is to honor the Eucharist, and is associated with Jesus’ institution of the Eucharist during the Last Supper.

At the end of the Mass, it is customary to have a Procession of the Blessed Sacrament (often outdoors) followed by Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.

We hope you can join us!

Annual Diocesan Appeal Update

Thank you to the parishioners who have already contributed to the Annual Diocesan Appeal.

This is opportunity to support the bigger Church of which we are a part.

We will really reach our goal when EVERY household contributes something. To date 25% of our families have given.

Whatever you can give is received with great gratitude. Our goal is 100% participation.

The Life of St. John Bosco: Indiscriminate Love

Saint John Bosco accomplished what many people considered an impossibility.

He walked through the streets of Turin, Italy, looking for the dirtiest, roughest urchins he could find, then made good
men of them.

His extraordinary success can be summed up in the words of his patron Saint, Francis de Sales: “The measure of his love was that he loved without measure.”
