Welcome Newcomers

Thank you for your interest in our parish. Whether you’re just visiting, looking for a new home parish, returning to the practice of your Catholic faith or interested in learning more about the Catholic Church, we welcome you.

Holy Cross is a culturally diverse community that welcomes all people to membership and participation in our liturgies, ministries, parish life and leadership. We gather to worship our Lord Jesus Christ in joy and are committed to addressing the needs of the Durham community and the people of God through direct service and promotion of social justice. We proclaim the Gospel by our lives: evangelizing, educating our youth and practicing a spirituality that finds God in all things.

Our parish is a place to grow spiritually, to put your faith in action, and to use our gifts of time and talent as disciples of Christ. We look forward to answering any questions you may have. In the meantime, please look through the resources we’ve made available on these pages:
