Sunday Worship

  • 8:15 a.m. A simple, traditional service of Holy Eucharist with occasional contemplative music.
  • 10:30 a.m. Holy Eucharist with music in a variety of styles including traditional hymns and anthems, contemporary spiritual and folks songs, and children's choirs on occasions. Children's Chapel is offered during this service. Children step out for an abbreviated, age-appropriate, interactive worship experience, and then join their families for communion.

Music at Holy Cross

One way that we learn how music is connected with our spiritual journey is through participation in one of our choirs. The children, youth, instrumentalists, soloists and adults practice the notes, harmonies, rhythms and logistics of performing music. But most importantly, we experience fellowship and cooperation as we explore how the text and the nuances of making music together can be a means to the inner faith journey. Consider joining choir this year to lift your heart and mind to God’s glory through the gift of music.

Below is the schedule of choirs:

  • Adult Choir: Sings weekly at 10:30 a.m. worship on Sundays September through early June. Rehearsals are Thursdays from 7:30-9 p.m. The choir also meets Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. in the sanctuary.
  • Children’s Choir (Age 3-Grade 5) Rehearsals are about once a month, at 10:00 a.m. in the Sunday School room. Children’s Choir sings at the 9 a.m. worship service on occasions throughout the year.
  • Guitar Group: Open to instrumentalists of all ages. Plays on the second and fourth Sundays of the month at the 9 a.m. service. Contact Mike Nicholson at for more information.
  • Instrumentalists: Musicians of all ages are invited to offer their musical gifts. Please contact Nick Lodico if you are interested in playing during worship.
During the summer months, the choirs take a break from rehearsals.

Weddings

One of our great joys at Holy Cross is to celebrate and bless a marriage. We take the responsibility very seriously, as our traditions demand.

Please contact the parish office for a copy of The Celebration and Blessing of a Marriage at Holy Cross, and to schedule a meeting with the Rector.
