From the start of the pandemic we at holy Cross have endeavored to worship God and serve our neighbor as we always have, but in a way that is in accord with public guidelines and mandates, and with our Christian duty to love our neighbor and not put them at undue risk. However, we have also continued to pray for and desire a return to greater normalcy. With the growing number of vaccinated people, as well as changes in mandates and guidelines, we now believe it is time to take the following steps toward that normalcy.
– The wearing of masks is no longer required by Seminole County. We recommend following CDC guidelines regarding keeping our congregation safe.- the wearing of masks is still encouraged for the protection of yourself and your neighbor, especially when up and moving around or not able to socially distance.
– Front line volunteers that deal with members, guests, and visitors face-to-face will still wear masks when performing their duties.
– The additional space we created by removing rows for social distancing will remain. And we continue to ask you to leave a few seats in between you and other family groups.

Let us know if you are ill so we can add you to the prayer list, also let us know if you need any assistance so we can help or point you in the right direction.
Our schools have been prepared with online curriculum and computers required as part of our K-12 experience. We are working with the health department to follow best practices. Along with state guidance, we are continuing to request that students wear masks during indoor classroom learning and in the hallways.
The best thing you can do is retain as much of our normal routine as possible while continuing to turn to the Lord for solace.
Worship Services are at 8AM and 10AM on Sunday Mornings.
