Hurricane Florence Update

Masses will be held this weekend; opportunities to help those in need, prayer in times of natural disasters

Mass will be celebrated at Holy Cross this weekend, during both the Saturday Vigil and Sunday 10 AM Masses, for those who are able to attend. Note that Bishop Luis Rafael Zarama has granted a dispensation from the weekend Mass obligation to all Catholics in the Diocese of Raleigh because of the severe weather. Our pastor, Fr. Bart Karwacki, urges parishioners to use good judgment in deciding whether to attend Mass. Those who do not venture out but wish to celebrate the liturgy may watch a Catholic Mass on TV. Here is one option

Prayers

Want to pray but can't find the words? Here is a collection of prayers in time of natural disaster, to help focus our attention and petitions.
