Holy Cross offers numerous opportunities to serve the local and wider community. Since its first beginnings, meeting in the homes of parishioners, Holy Cross committed to use 10% of its previous year's income for outreach -- a commitment Holy Cross continues from its permanent home on Myrtle Grove Road. Holy Cross also uses its time and talents within the community.
We are always evaluating our projects and looking for others we have the resources to support. Contact the Outreach Coordinator with your ideas.
Below is a list of outreach programs Holy Cross is currently engages with.
Holy Cross actively supports the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina and contributes to Good Shepherd Center Dinners, reinforcing our commitment to local hunger relief.
We hosts monthly volunteer days at the Food Bank from 9:00am-12:00pm. Tasks vary, including packing goods and assembling weekend meals for kids.
Join us in offering a warm meal to those in need. Lend a hand with preparation and tidying up, guided by our skilled chef. Experience the profound joy of serving others!
