This next phase of the pandemic may require us to reset our expectations and awareness and change our behavior. People are fatigued and we want to believe that the virus is going away and everything is returning to normal. Unfortunately, the Covid-19 virus is not finished with us. We will need to figure out a way to live with a new normal. There are complications depending upon how the health threat is manifesting in different geographical regions by county and state. Holy Cross’ church council and leadership continue to monitor guidelines that pertain to Lake County.
We are making available a congregational questionnaire to do a “temperature check” to gauge your areas of concern. We recognize that personal responsibility and managing your comfort level with risk is an individual matter. We respect that there will be different views expressed and continue to strive to make informed decisions for everyone’s safety. If you would like to receive the questionnaire by mail please contact the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope that at least one person from each household would take the time to respond.
You probably have seen some signs around your neighborhood or the community thanking essential workers and expressing other encouraging words. Sidewalk or driveway chalk art has been another form of expression. Displays of art work in windows facing the sidewalks brightens our day.
We have 3 different signs available for members to pick up at Holy Cross. "Be a Blessing," "Hope Lives Here" or "Practice Kindness." If you would like a sign for your yard (free of charge, one per household, local pick up only) please complete this form:
Please note that all Sunday School classes are cancelled through May.
Sunday School Volunteers
All Sunday School programs (Core Stories and Deep Blue) are in need of teachers and shepherds. ALL members of the congregation are invited to participate and serve in this program as mentors/partners for these young people along their faith journey. These positions can be for a rotational unit or for the year, as your schedule allows.
