Holy Cross serves “in the world,” but not “of the world.” Our ministries are focused on serving those marginalized, excluded or forgotten by society. If you would like to serve God’s children, and find God among those in need, please join us.
Our homeless ministry works with community partners to bring God’s Love, the Sacraments of Christ’s Catholic and Apostolic Church, and relief for physical needs to our sisters and brothers living unsheltered in the community.
Many of our homeless ministry members rely on bicycles to access their daily needs, and to connect to their unique community. Those returning to the community from prison or drug and alcohol treatment often need a bicycle as they earn funds to purchase a vehicle as they rebuild their lives. We refurbish and provide bikes to those in need, to help them on their path. Volunteers, used bikes and funds for parts are always needed!
Nursing Home Ministry
Holy Cross visits and performs virtual services for four nursing homes in the Enid area, bringing Love and the Sacraments of Communion and Unction to those in need. If you have a loved one in a nursing home who needs pastoral care, please contact us.
The first Christian churches were in the home, and in the public square. Holy Cross aims to bring that tradition back to life, bringing the church closest to those in need, and reducing overhead expenses. If you have pastoral needs and would like to be visited, or if you are willing to host 2-3 other families for a communal gathering, please contact us.
At the Cross, a criminal crucified near our Lord prayed, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.” He replied, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise.” Today, we work to remember and serve the prisoner, bringing them God’s unconditional Love, and the healing power of His Sacraments.
Ready to Serve?
St. Paul reminds us we must “serve one another humbly in love,” for “the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” If you are ready to put faith into action, or even if you are unsure about your faith, we welcome you to join us and serve alongside us.
