Social Life Commission


The purpose of the Social Life Committee at Holy Cross is to bring parishioners together and build an active and vibrant social community while integrating spirituality in these activities of our parish. 

Some of the best known activities that Social Life sponsors are the Christmas Boutique, the Tamale Sale, Simbangabe, and the celebration of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

Additionally, the Knights of Columbus, the Boys Scouts of America and the Girls Scouts of America are also very active at Holy Cross.  The Pancake Breakfasts, Fish Fries, and Spaghetti Dinner are just some of the activities sponsored by the Knights, and the Scouts.

As you can see, there are plenty of opportunities to become as involved as your personal schedule will allow.  We encourage you to select at least one group or activity that works for you, call the primary point of contact then roll up your sleeves and join the fun.
