Dear Stewards of Holy Cross,

With 2017 nearly half over I offer my profound thanks to all of our Stewards who have made their yearly financial pledge offering supporting our community as we preach the Word of God and minister to many including the welcoming of new families to Holy Cross.  

It is with excitement and joy that I  thank you for making such a sacrificial and important gift. I also ask that you take a few moments to pray and think about the monetary pledge you make for our parish, either through our website, or by filling out the pledge form you received by mail, pledging in faith your financial commitment to Holy Cross for 2017. It represents you and your love for our Lord and His Church of the Holy Cross.

Yes, all of us feel the challenge to meet our daily obligations. But we also do so as we witness our Lord’s miraculous and lifesaving interventions daily. Placing our church parish at the top of our financial priority list tells God that we consider His love and care most important.  For it is through the stewardship that we are called by God to offer, that we express our genuine love and dedication to Him.  In so doing, we continue to receive His grace, mercy, and abundant and compassionate care a hundred-fold. 

I encourage those families who still have not made their financial pledge to Holy Cross to do so today.  It is important for you, your family, and your parish family. We all collectively make our parish strong and vibrant.

Thank you for your prayerful commitment that helps sustain our parish and collectively strengthens our commitment to serve Him who has sacrificed so much for us.

Monday, May 22 – 6 PM, Matins, 7 PM, Divine Liturgy @ Stanford Memorial Church.  Our Holy Cross Chanters and Adult Choir will chant the Matins and offer the responses in the Divine Liturgy. A reception will follow for all who attend.
