The Holy Cross Fraternity is helping several local ministries serving the needs of those less fortunate. For more information and needs, click their links below or contact us!
SAINT VINCENT DE PAUL
The Saint Vincent de Paul Society relies on donations from our parish family, members of the community, the Salvation Army, and other local organizations to help those in need. Throughout the Panther Valley area, we have posted flyers advertising our emergency food pantry services. Those in need simply pull a tab from the flyer and call the parish office. They will receive a return phone call from one of our members, who will assess their needs and deliver food to their door. For more information click: St Vincent de Paul

We are assisting by working within our local communities to collect various items that are needed to support the ministry. For more info Click Link: Peaceful Knights
