More than a building
Holy Cross Catholic Church first began as one of the 21 California missions: La Exaltacion de la Santa Cruz, giving its name to the city and county. We continue to grow, with a mission for the 21st century.
Holy Cross reaches out to its own, its youth and pre-school children, its elderly; and to people and communities sometimes alienated from the Church in various ways. Holy Cross, indeed, is about more than just buildings. Above all else, Holy Cross means family, community, inclusion, and service to others.
We are happy to have people from all around the world learning about our mission — the church in action today, as well as in history.
We hope you enjoy visiting Holy Cross Catholic Church!
