Since 1984 the folks of Holy Cross have chipped-in to make a difference in the community around them. But recently we noticed something: while there were many opportunities for adults at Holy Cross to serve in the community, and our student ministries include service opportunities for young folks, there haven’t been many opportunities for whole families to serve the community together through Holy Cross. So, beginning with holiday season 2012, we started Family Serve: monthly opportuntities for the whole family to “load up the minivan and make and make an impact”.


Grace N’ Grits is an event that serves quality meals Wednesday Evenings from 5:30 to 6:30 pm at the Sanford Civic Center in downtown Sanford.

Each church takes a turn preparing and serving a variety of hot meals, and local supermarkets donate baked goods and bread which can be taken home.
