HOLY CROSS CATHOLIC CHURCH December 25, 2016 CHRISTMAS DAY Diciembre 25, 2016

We continue to make progress towards our initial milestone of $2,500,000 needed to start construction. We are truly blessed to have parishioners who are willing to make huge sacrifices to support this critical project. We thank immensely for their generosity. We of-fer our prayers to them and to those who have pledged.

We still have a long way to go to reach our goal of $5,000,000. Unfortunately, this is not something the steadfast few can accomplish alone. We need everyone in the parish to sup-port their church and pledge to make this dream a reality. Many of you contribute to the success of the parish in various ways and it is greatly appreciated. The time is now to go beyond your current level of support and make a financial investment in the future of this parish.

There are over 2000 families registered at Holy Cross, and up to today, we have pledges and cash of $2,022,619.56 with 250 families participating! If you have not pledged, please find it in your heart to complete the pledge form located in the pews and place it in the box in the back of the church or go to www.holycrosscc.org to pledge online.

Give In Faith Today for our Future.

Nosotros continuamos haciendo progreso hacia nuestra meta de $2,500,000 que se necesitan para comenzar la construcción. Nosotros estamos verdaderamente bendecidos de tener feli-greses que están dispuestos a hacer grandes sacrificios para apoyar este proyecto tan im-portante. Les damos inmensamente las gracias por su generosidad y les ofrecemos nuestras oraciones a todos ellos y a los que ya han hecho sus promesas.

Todavía tenemos un largo camino que recorrer para alcanzar nuestra meta de $5,000,000. Desafortunadamente esto no es algo que los que ya han decidido participar, puedan lograr solos. Necesitamos que todos en la parroquia se decidan a hacer su promesa para hacer de este sueño una realidad. Muchos de ustedes contribuyen de diferentes maneras para el éxito de nuestra parroquia, y esto es enormemente agradecido. Ahora es tiempo de ir mas allá de nuestro nivel de apoyo actual y hacer una inversión financiera en el futuro de esta parroquia. Tenemos más de 2000 familias registradas aquí en Holy Cross, y hasta el día de hoy, con un total de 250 familias participando, tenemos en promesas y efectivo $2,022.619.56. Si usted no ha hecho su promesa, por favor tóquese el corazón y llene la forma de compromiso que tene-mos en las bancas de la iglesia y deposítela en la caja que esta al entrar a la iglesia o vaya a

www.holycrosscc.org para hacer su promesa en línea.

Dé con Fe Hoy para nuestro Futuro.

Merry Christmas and Blessed -ew Year!

Father Joy Joseph, Father Raphael Eagle and the staff wish each and every member of our parish family a Merry Christmas and a Blessed )ew Year. May the )ew born Babe of Bethlehem bless each one of us, our families and our

loved ones with His gift of peace, joy, love, and choicest blessings. Pray that our )ew Year be one that brings us closer to God and to our parish family; that praises God for His love and mercy; and that enables us to reach out to
