Holy Cross Directory Update and Family Portrait Photos

One additional date added - March 4 - for household portraits

Sample portrait photo Thanks to the 204 households that have scheduled their photo sessions.

Due to strong interest, one additional photo session date – March 4 – has been added by Lifetouch, our partner company for our parish directory. 

You also will have an opportunity to have generational portrait photos taken. If you plan to do that, please schedule your families in consecutive times. Every family photographed will receive a 20 percent discount on their photo purchase.

Helping others

Lifetouch is providing a small discount on portrait photo packaegs for those who bring a non-perishable food donation to their photo session. The food will be donated to Catholic Charities.

Personalize your portrait photo

We encourage you to be creative with your portraits by bringing to your photo session items that are meaningful to your family: a musical instrument, family Bible, sports equipment, but please – but no pets.

Helping Others

Lifetouch – a company with a passion for mission work – is partnering with our church to help restock local food pantries. Bring any non-perishable food item with you to your photography appointment and receive $5 off your portrait order.   

Thank you in advance for being part of this important ministry to our church! We look forward to seeing YOU and your portrait in our new directory. For details, contact directory project coordinator Dreda Guion.
