Ecumenism

Ecumenism at Holy Cross Catholic Church and Lutheran Church of the Cross

The ecumenical (or, interfaith) relationship between the Lutheran Church of the Cross and Holy Cross Catholic Church has existed since the two worship spaces were completed. Originally connected by a long hallway underneath the current bell tower, the addition of the Cross Way Center provided more space for the two congregations to come together.

In the past year, the two churches coordinated a Thanksgiving prayer service, Ash Wednesday services, a Good Friday and Tenebrae Service, and of course, a joint celebration of the Triumph of the Cross.

For more information about ecumenism at Holy Cross, please contact the pastor at 282-7217.

"Nevertheless, many elements of sanctification and truth are found outside it's visible confines.  Since these are gifts belonging to the church of Christ, they are forces impelling towards Catholic unity."
