Upcoming Events at Holy Cross

What is a TEC Retreat? How Do I sign up? TEC – Together Encountering Christ is a three-day retreat supported by the St. Cloud Diocese. The retreat is intended for both youth (age 16+) and adults and is modeled after the Paschal Mystery - the Easter message of death, resurrection and sending forth.  Check out what others have experienced by participating in an upcoming TEC weekend. For information and registration details, visit the website at or call (320) 532.4455. Questions about TEC? Ask someone who’s been there: Tim Honek, Margaret Hitzemann, Kathy Lundeen, Richard Schumacher, Br. Christopher Erran, OSC, Mary Pat Sorvik, Brenda Gotvald Deacon Marcos Leles, OSC, Marge Agnew, Paul Dickson or Amanda Gjerde.  Future retreat dates to sign-up:  August 2-4 and October 18-20.

Volunteers needed to help lend a hand – Staff at Lake Song Assisted Living Memory Care have brought to our attention that there are residents that would like to attend mass on Sundays.  Due to staff limitations they are unable to bring them to mass. We are looking for volunteers to go over to Lake Song and pick up the resident at 8:45 a.m., bring them to mass (staying with them during mass) and then return them to Lake Song when mass is over. If you would be willing to help in this ministry, please contact Kathy at the parish office 320-532-3122. Thank you in advance!


Senior Day at the ROC! All Seniors are invited to the Ralph Olson Center (ROC) in Onamia on Wednesday, July 24th from 11:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. We will have a warm lunch, meet and visit with friends and play Bingo! If you would like to go and need a ride, please call Kelly Miner, Community Activities Director at: 320-532-6829 or Alice Nickolay at 612-760-1333. We look forward to seeing you!

Time and Talent Surveys –  Please return any completed Time and Talent surveys to the basket in the Narthex. Blank copies are available in the clear file holder on the wall near the elevator. Remember, these surveys will also be used for a Holy Cross Parish census update. Any questions, contact Tina Dickson at 320-532-5038.

Recovery Works - The Freedom Center is offering a new opportunity open to anyone in a recovery program.  It is called "Recovery Works" and it is held from 7:00 P.M. until 8:00 P.M. every Monday in the basement of the Holy Cross Center.

WHAT IS A PRAYER LINE? A Prayer Line is a line of communication among believers who are willing to be “on call” to pray for a specific need. The set up allows prayer requests to be relayed immediately without waiting.  You can be a part of this very important ministry, receiving prayer requests either by phone or by e-mail.  Call Mavonne at 651-276-3317; Kathy at the Parish Office 320-532-3122 or Tina Dickson at 320-532-5038, if you would like to use your time and talents in this way.  Also, if you have a prayer request for a specific need, call the Parish Office or Tina Dickson.
