HEARTS, FLOWERS AND CANDY FOR KIDS 'N' CANCER - Sunday, February 11
Please join the Philoptochos after liturgy on Sunday, February 11 for Kids’n’Cancer Valentine Sunday and give your heart to a child fighting cancer.  Come and share a delicious and very special coffee hour brunch together with your Holy Cross family and open your hearts to these children who are fighting so hard against this terrible disease. Let’s help them attend a camp for a few days of fun out in nature. They need our support.  Help the Philoptochos raise at least $6,000 again this year for the third year in a row by making a generous donation for the luncheon, purchasing a raffle ticket and “adopting” a bear to show you care.  See you then.  Invite your friends to join us, too!
