By now you have all received your 2016 Stewardship Packets in the mail and are very excited about making the BIG move to online giving.  Beginning tomorrow, Sunday, November 22, 2015,  Dr. Tanya Spirtos, members of our Parish Council and savvy parishioners will be available in the Oaks, with computers,  to answer questions and sign you up to create your online giving account.  It is easy, fun, and will save the church paper, money, and time in processing your financial pledges and other donations. The first 20 parishioners to sign up will receive a ticket for a fantastic mystery gift. Philoptochos, Parish Council, Religious Education, ORA, Youth Council, Tech Committee, and our Holy Cross Preschool all support online giving. Join us tomorrow and help our Church fulfill our mission and vision as a parish by making your 2016 Pledge online.

We’re getting ready to “deck the halls” and “jingle bells,” at the Holy Cross Community Christmas Program, 5 PM in The Oaks. Please note the earlier start time! We hope everyone will join us as we celebrate the birth of Jesus with songs by the Sunday School, Youth Choir, and Greek School, a play by the Drama Program, and the Nativity Scene by the Sunday School students. We also expect a jolly old elf to make a grand entrance and visit with all the good girls and boys! Young people interested in performing in the Nativity Scene, please contact Irene Fotinos,, or Eva Canellos, If you want to play or sing a Christmas song, contact Eva Canellos.
