Welcome to the Parish of the Holy Cross. Whether you are a long time parishioner or a first time visitor we are happy you chose to visit with us as we honor Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ under the banner of His Holy Cross.
We are a large and diverse Catholic community of faith, from the farms of Pittsgrove Township to the bay community of Port Norris. Our parish is enriched by both generations of families deeply rooted in our community and newly arriving Mexican immigrants. The familiar refrain we pray at Lent, “we adore you O Christ and we bless you, because by your holy Cross you have redeemed the world,” rings true in our hearts every day of the year. The Holy Cross saves and unites us all. We strive to be an evangelizing parish community that gives witness to the Gospel by words and deeds of love and service. Jesus Christ came to seek and save the lost. We continue that mission. If you are searching for deeper meaning in your life and want to learn more about our parish, I invite you to call our office.
