Service, Worship, Friendship and Fun
Holy Cross Youth is a community of 6th – 12th graders that reaches outward to help the community and also inward to support one another. We meet weekly on Sunday evenings from 5 - 6 p.m. for learning, prayer, activities, games, and youth group business (for example, discussing upcoming events, fundraising, or stuffing Easter eggs for our youngest parishioners). We often close with a short service of Compline.
The youth shop together for toys to stock a Christmas toy store for those in need, collect e-waste to protect the environment, and participate in other community projects. We hold the annual Holy Cross pancake supper on Shrove Tuesday. At the end of the program year, we lead the morning service on Youth Sunday. The prayers are written, the lessons are read, and the sermon is preached by Holy Cross children and youth. Then, those interested head out on mission trips over the summer.
This is just a sampling of the life of Holy Cross Youth. There is much more, and many surprises await! We welcome newcomers. To get started or just learn more, reach out to youth leader, Kevin Laskowski.
