Thank you for your patience with the different equipment in the church over the two weeks. As you may know, the church is nearly 20 years old. Thanks to a very generous benefactor, we have had contractors cleaning the entire church including the restrooms, library, and sacristy. They have been busy removing dust and debris from the chandeliers, supply and return ducts, and windows, while also steam cleaning the carpet and pews. While the equipment and machinery are quite an eyesore, it’s a small sacrifice to have this overdue project finally executed. The way we care for a building shows our love for it.
When receiving texts and emails from the parish, know that we never solicit cash contributions or gift cards. Be sure you don’t just look at the name of the sender, but the actual email address used. When in doubt, call the parish and ask an employee if he/she sent you that email or text. As a security precaution, the Holy Cross staff have begun this week using the same email “environment.” Any emails from individual staff members will end with @holycrossnc.com.
It’s this time of year that I begin searching for new members of the parish’s Pastoral Council and Financial Council. If you want more information or are interested in either advisory council, please reach out through the parish office to make an appointment to speak with me. Terms for both councils begin in July.
