What to Expect

We invite you, your friends, neighbors, and families to celebrate Christmas with us at Holy Cross! We have a few options for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Masses. Our first Mass on Christmas Eve is Sunday, December 24, 2017 at 4 pm. This Mass is a special liturgy that follows a pageant performed by the children of the parish. The pageant begins at 3:15 pm. If your children are participating, please remember to arrive by 2:45pm. We encourage you to get here early as seating quickly runs out for this special liturgy. There will be overflow seating in Yeazel Hall with a live video feed. Following the 4 o’clock liturgy is a Vigil Mass at 6 pm, or celebrate with us as Christmas Eve becomes Christmas Day during our Midnight Mass. Come at 11:30 pm for a short Christmas concert with carols from our choir. Mass begins at 12:00 am. We offer two opportunities for Christmas morning Masses on Monday, December 25, 2017. The first is at 8:00 am and the second is at 10:30 am. Masses for the Fourth Sunday of Advent (Sunday, December 24th) will be held at their regular weekend times (Saturday at 4pm, Sunday at 7:30 am, 9:00 am, and 11:30 am). We hope you can join us!
