Our Senior Lunch is a long standing tradition at Holy Cross. Once a month (3rd Monday) our dedicated “ministers” provide a free hot lunch to 80-90 senior citizens from the Delta Senior Center and the surrounding community. The attendees are always anxious to see what awaits them on the homemade dessert table at the end of their hearty lunch.
Other Outreach Programs at Holy Cross are varied and unique. The congregation helps to support the food pantry at the Mason Dixon Community Services by sponsoring a “Grocery Bag Sunday” on the third Sunday each month. In addition, food and gift baskets are provided to the requesting Mason Dixon Community Services families on Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
We actively support the Harford Family House (Formerly Holy Family House) in their efforts to provide transitional housing to temporarily homeless families in the Harford County area. We provide monetary support though the Holy Cross Guild as well as furniture and household items that are solicited and provided for H.F.H. residents. In early December we provide the International Seafarers Center in Baltimore with “shoeboxes” filled with a Bible, game, personal care items, candy, gum and a small warm clothing item for the visiting seamen. We are active with the United Thank Offering, Habitat for Humanity and many other groups through the Guild’s fundraising activities.
