As single adults or married adults with children, getting connected at Holy Cross is about relationships that get beneath the surface. We are bombarded daily with all sorts of messages that pull us in many different ways. Our vision gets cloudy and our relationship with God compromised. Building meaningful and transparant relationships in the context of our church community is the way to strengthen and encourage us to walk on in the path toward our Lord.
