Community Outreach

These are Ministries and Outreach programs through which Holy Cross is serving our greater community.

CareGivers Support Group
Isabel Mooney and Laura Jansen
This group meets at Holy Cross, usually on the second Saturday morning of each month. Information, prayer, and comraderie is available to those who provide care to family, friends, or others. Many who participate are caring for those loved ones with Alzheimers, but it is open to those giving care to anyone. The Support Group affords an opportunity to "take a break", relax over coffee, tea, or snacks while sharing and supporting others in similar situations. It is truly a blessing to those shouldering an additional burden of love. Contact: Church Office 248-427-1175

The Men's Fellowship meets once a month, generally on the third Saturday of the month, and offers an opportunity for members of Holy Cross and members of the community to gather for fellowship and service. We gather at least once a month at various local restaurants to share light-hearted banter, laughter, or serious discussion along with breakfast or lunch. We will occasionally choose a project performing needed work or volunteering our time at Holy Cross and in the community, using the various skills with which God has individually blessed us. Please check the calendar for the time and place of the next meeting. Contact: Church Office 248-427-1175
