Outdoor Communion Services - Letter From Pastor

July 27, 2020

Hello Holy Cross Family,

This is Pastor Bartels and I miss you and continue to pray for each and every one of you. Beginning this Wednesday July 29th we will be conducting Outdoor Communion Services for small groups around the fountain in the Memorial Garden – The service will last approximately 10 – 12 minutes.

You must wear a mask and social distancing will be required. 

  • We are offering times in the morning and evening to allow all to be able to come. On Wednesday – morning times are 9:00 am and  9:20 am and evening times are 6:00 PM, 6:20 PM, 6:40 PM, and 7:00 PM these times may be adjusted in the future.

We ask that you remain in your car till the appropriate time, then walk up the church sidewalk where there will be a hand sanitizing station, then proceed to the table by the front door where prepackaged communion elements will be placed for you to pick up one for yourself and then proceed to the fountain area entering from the church side. You will then be asked to go and stand on a black dot with a cross on it which have been placed on the patio brick all at least 6 feet a part – couples/families may all stand on one dot – if you are not able to stand a chair will be provided. Directions will be given at that time and following the service we ask that all will return to your cars and please at all times practice social distancing.  If you have not registered you may do so on the Holy Cross website. www.holycrossnm.com/calendar

If you did not register we still encourage you to come as it has been a while since we have celebrated communion.  If you have any questions please contact Pastor Bartels.
