Holy Cross Orthodox Church, 7545 Main Street in Ralston, Nebraska will celebrate its second anniversary as an Orthodox parish on Sunday, June 28th. Holy Cross was received into the Orthodox Church from the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) in June of 2013, and is a Western Rite parish of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia (ROCOR).

There are now more than fifty Western Rite Orthodox congregations and monastic communities in the United States, with others in Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and on the continent of Europe, and our numbers are growing.  There have been eleven Western Rite ordinations since December 2014, in ROCOR alone. 

Holy Cross Orthodox Church will celebrate the day with the Liturgy of the Holy Eucharist at 10:00 AM, followed by a potluck luncheon in the parish hall immediately after Mass. For more information email me at or call (402) 573-6558. The public is invited to attend.
