Welcome to the Holy Cross COVID-19 Connections

"In coping with the COVID-19 pandemic, we can feel anxiety, frustration, and stress. It is not hard to become a doubting Thomas, questioning where is God in all this. ... It may trouble us to think this way and to question our faith, but this gives us an opportunity to deepen our faith." - from Fr. Bart's Divine Mercy Sunday homily

Covid-19 Info Holy CrossFor the safety of our parishioners and visitors, all indoor parish functions, including Saturday Vigil and weekday Masses, have been cancelled, with one exception.

Fr. Bart is celebrating our 10 AM Sunday Mass, assisted by a small crew (up to 10 people, the maximum allowed in the building at this time). The Mass is being live-streamed to our Facebook page.

Many of our ministries continue to serve the parish via online meetings.

  • The Triangle Catholics Scripture and Young Adult Faith Sharing group, which had met at Holy Cross each Wednesday, is now meeting online.
  • Plans are in the works to celebrate our graduates' accomplishments virtually as well, including recognizing our parish scholarship recipients.
  • Our communications team is working toward livestreaming to the parish's YouTube channel, and welcomes you to subscribe  to our channel: Holy Cross Catholic Church Durham NC.
  • A technology team is working on several technology upgrades in the church building.
  • Our Social Action ministry continues to serve those in need in the community, through a drive-by Fill-the-Truck food donation event and the parish's community sharing garden. Both help the Durham Community Food Pantry meet the nutritional needs of their clients. 

While the pandemic has kept us apart, the parish still needs to pay its bills. We hope that you can continue to provide support for the parish by mailing in your donations to 2438 S. Alston Avenue, Durham NC, 27713, or by donating via our Online Giving resource. Click here to donate online.

If you are not receiving email messages from the parish, please send a note to communications@holycrossdurham.org with your name, street address, preferred email address and phone number, so that we can update our communications distribution list.

Stay safe, stay healthy, stay in touch. Follow and engage with us on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
