Send suggestions to Deacon Phil Rzewnicki, facilitator of adult faith formation programs, in coordination with Jeantta Hopkins, Holy Cross director of religious education.




Some approach spirituality as the wholehearted living of Christian faith, creed, moral code, and worship. Others consider it to be humanity’s innate reaching for self-transcendence and for ultimate meaning. Some insist that it must include a God-centered struggle for justice. But for almost everyone, spirituality implies a direct relationship with God. (Source: U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, paper on an ecological spirituality.)

Our mission is to enable all youth and adults in our parish community to understand and live a rich faith live rooted in Catholic traditions and practices.

For adults exploring Catholicism or a return to the Catholic faith: 


Adults interested in becoming Catholic or returing to the Catholic Church are welcome to join us for our informal adult spirituality growth opportunities, and also to participate in our sacramental preparation programs: RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) and Landings (for those returning to active membership in the Catholic Church). 


All young adults in the Triangle area are welcome to participating in these Wednesday evenings, to read and reflect upon the upcoming Sunday's Scripture readings, led by Jason Martin, Holy Cross young adult parishioner.
