To our faithful, guests, and visitors:
We received an important message from the diocese late yesterday evening.
To summarize, Patriarch Bartholomew has decreed that no church should hold services or any other activities through March 31, when the situation will be reviewed. So, no services at Holy Cross during that time. In addition, because of the limited resources at Holy Cross, we will be unable to keep the church open for private prayer. It is certainly NOT a time to discontinue, but rather, intensify, your personal prayers.
In the meantime, let us all take a few moments to remember and pray all of those who may be sick, in need, or may need our help and comfort in this time. May our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ offer guidance and protection during this difficult time, so that we may resume our worship together in His name as speedily as possible.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
Welcome to the home page for Holy Cross Orthodox Mission, located in Columbus, Ohio.
Established on March 7, 2010, the Orthodox Mission Community of the Holy Cross is currently home to 60 souls. The Divine Liturgy is served each Sunday at 9:30 a.m., with Confessions each Saturday at 4:30 p.m. and Vespers at 5:00 p.m. Church School is offered each Sunday following the Divine Liturgy (September through May).
God has blessed us throughout these early years, not only with growth in numbers, but with growth in Faith and perseverance. We are grateful to all those who have and continue to support us in our work and welcome those who are interested in our Ancient Faith, as well as those Orthodox Christians visiting our area.
Please enjoy your visit to our website. We hope that, over time, it will become a source of inspiration and information for many.
We ask that you remember our community and its work in your prayers and be assured of our prayers for all those who visit these pages.
