On April 27, 2018 we held our Holy Cross has got Talent Show. 16 acts involving a lot of our parishioners made for a fun evening that raised money for our youth activities. Enjoy!

As much fun as our youth group has together as they perform for seniors, it's a pretty safe bet to assume that their concert at Tryon Estates was their favorite performance yet. Was it the attentive audience as they sung their hearts out? Was it the prowess several demonstrated on both violin and piano? Was it the sincere, 'You're welcome!' replies they received after personally thanking (excellent idea, Sharol!) residents following the concert?
Or was it the....POOL PARTYYYYYY!!!
Thank you, Tryon Estates, for your generous offer as a reward for all the children's hard work and dedication!

When you consider that the call for help to benefit Thermal Belt Outreach went out very last minute owing to the previously scheduled 'Dad and Kids Day' being postponed, what a stellar congregation we have!
Holy Cross got the 'heads up' that TBO was very low on firewood--the only way many in our community have to heat their homes--and with many of our Dads away on our annual Vestry retreat, we are so grateful to those, young and old alike who stepped up, split and stacked firewood. Even the little ones did what they could, clearing up the raised beds, readying them for spring vegetable planting.
So an enormous THANK YOU to all of you who stepped in and stepped up!!

Being well acquainted with Laurelhurst Retirement Community as the residence for both my mother and mother-in-law, I nodded in agreement when the social director informed me, 'Sometimes are residents aren't very enthusiastic about signing up for activities, but they always turn out for anything that involves children!'
And turn out they did for the next stop in our youth choir 'tour.' With the accomplished Jean Moore on piano and the ever patient Sharon Ard encouraging choreography, the children gave yet another well received and most enjoyable concert. It's truly wonderful to see our Holy Cross youth growing up right before eyes, and actively seeking one another out for friendship and fun!

What better comfort can there be than for parents to have a well deserved 'date night,' or simply a chance to remain home, together, in complete peace and quiet, all the while knowing their children are not only being carefully looked after by the volunteers at Holy Cross church, but are having a wonderful time to boot!
The youth demographic at Holy Cross has continued to blossom and what fun it is for all of us to watch these children light up at yet another opportunity to spend time together!

How grateful we are to have the talented and patient Jean Moore to teach, coach and help deliver our precious little ones to highly anticipated recitals to our community's retirement facilities. Benson Hall residents were treated to the Holy Cross youth choir as the children performed their carefully rehearsed program. And if that wasn't enough several members of the choir showed their proficiency by playing the violin and tickling the ivories.
The smiles on the residents' faces says it all!
