First Communion 2020

“Unless you eat my flesh and drink my Blood you have no life in you…” (John 6:53)

Sophia, Elias and Naomi, all Level ll children in the Atrium, were looking forward to encounter Jesus, their Good Shepherd in First Holy Communion, at Easter 2020 with other candidates from the parish and Holy Cross School. Unfortunately, their hopes were shattered by the global shutdown due to COVID-19. Jesus, who loved them first and saw their yearning and sincerity, inspired His Grace, Archbishop Albert LeGatt to satisfy their hunger. At a special Mass, celebrated by His Grace, Archbishop Albert LeGatt on Sunday, July 12, 2020 at 3:00pm, the three children, in the presence of their families and friends, received Jesus in the Eucharist for the first time. Their joy was palpable throughout the ceremony. Let us continue to support them with our prayers and good Christian living. Congratulations to Sophia, Elias and Naomi! We hope you continue to enjoy your relationship with Jesus, the Good Shepherd.

—Sister Bibiana, HHCJ

Kitchen/Hall Renovation Update

Thanks to the hard-working fundraisers and your generous donations towards our Kitchen/Hall Renovation Project, we have now raised $220,105!!! Holy Cross Parish has hired the services of an architect firm and they have begun the work to get this project off the ground. The total estimated cost to replace/remodel the kitchen, hall, washrooms, storage areas and back entrance is $550,000. These past two weeks Holy Cross Parish has applied for grants totaling $250,000. We are also in the process of applying for grants from 3 other organizations. We realize this has been a long and sometimes frustrating process; however, we are grateful to be seeing some light at the end of the tunnel! We sincerely hope to begin this project by June 2020. Thank you for your continued patience!
