Our outreach community organization has been an integral part of Holy Cross since the inception of the parish in 2004.
Our ministry is to assist those people in need who reside within the communities of Lake Stevens and Granite Falls.
Those needs may include utility assistance, food, or some other form of help.
Often, the most valuable service is provided by the many volunteers who give of time to listen and support those who feel that they are alone.
Many of these people just need someone to give them loving attention by listening and not judging.
Loss of hope and loneliness are very real and difficult problems to help.
Yet God calls us to relieve spiritual hunger as well as the physical one.
