The Christmas Envelopes, which are by the newsletters, are used for the collection at Masses on Christmas Day, which is the traditional ‘Thank You’ collection by parishioners to the priests of their parish for their work and service. Priests here receive no salary whatsoever for their work and depend on the generosity of parishioners for their personal income. Thank you very much for your continued support. We wish you a peaceful and blessed Christmas season.

THANK YOU: We, the Priests (Father Henry, the parish priest, Fr. Philip and Fr. Luke) take this opportunity of wishing you and all your families a very Happy Christmas and blessings for the New Year 2022. We thank everyone who help in the Parish in the various areas of our Parish Life at Holy Cross: Altar Servers, Sacristans, Choir Members, Cleaners, Flower Team, Readers, Eucharistic Ministers, Stewards and All Volunteers. There are so many involved in our Parish Life here!  And may we say thank you for the help and prayers you give us.
