Welcome to The Church of the Holy Cross

Our mandatory mask mandate was lifted March 1, 2022.  Nevertheless,
all parishoners and visitors are welcome to continue wearing masks
while on our premises.

We have returned to offering the Common Cup at all Communion services.
However, given the rise in infections with the COVID-19 BA.5 subvariant
throughout the High Country (especially here in Watauga and Avery
Counties), we have temporarily returned to using individual cups to
distribute the wine during Communion.

We thank you for your understanding!

Sunday, September 11, 2022 - Please note the change in schedule as St. John's is closed during the autumn & winter months

About Holy Cross

Holy Cross is a Christ-centered Episcopal community of faith that offers an active, loving, and welcoming place of worship, ministry, and Christian fellowship.

We are committed to meaningful worship services and celebrating the love of Christ through the Holy Eucharist, hearing the Word, and embracing all who enter our doors.

This parish is truly characterized by energy and a dedication to helping others through a variety of ministries, strong lay leadership and active participation of all.

We are a multifaceted faith community that treasures and enjoys each other and our connections to our surrounding communities.

First and foremost, Holy Cross is a place of worship. We do not represent a large membership but we openly receive those from all walks of life. All are welcome to share the Holy Eucharist at our table.

The liturgy, celebration of the Holy Eucharist, challenging sermons, inspiring sacred music, the beauty and history of this simple stone church all combine to offer an inspirational and compelling place to worship and draw closer to God.
