Welcome to Holy Cross Catholic Church!

     We are a Catholic and Apostolic Church, preserving the faith, worship, structure, and practice of the undivided Church, an independent community worshipping in the Catholic tradition.
We have a democratic process where clergy and church members meet to make decisions for the Church and a Board of Directors who oversees the management of the parish. 
Together we seek to know the reconciling love of God and share that love with everyone.
     Independent Catholicism is an expression of sacramental faith that functions outside of the jurisdiction or permission of Rome. As such, we welcome all God’s people to fully participate in the sacramental life of our Church. We recognize and pray for Pope Francis as the bishop of Rome. We believe that he has been chosen through prayer and the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit to lead the Roman Catholic Church throughout the world. However, we do not function within his jurisdiction. We neither seek to reform nor to change the Church. Rather we provide a place at the one great table of faith for the marginalized, and those who find themselves outside the embrace of the Church. Jesus, the Good Shepherd himself said, “I have other sheep that are not of this fold. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.” (John 10:16). We look forward to that great day of perfect communion, and pray for its coming at every Mass.
