Greetings in the Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,

My name is Fr. Victor Novak, and I am new to blogging. In fact, this is my first post. I am the rector of Holy Cross Anglican Church. Holy Cross is a parish of the Reformed Episcopal Church/Anglican Church in North America. We are located in the Ralston suburb of Omaha, Nebraska. Our street address is 7545 Main Street, Ralston, NE 68127. The church phone number is (402) 573-6558.

Holy Cross is a classical Anglican Church. We worship according to the Liturgy of the historic Book of Common Prayer. At Holy Cross parish God is worshipped in a spirit of holiness, the uncompromised Word of God is taught, the Sacraments are administered with reverence, and the great hymns of the Church are sung. Christian Education classes are at 9:00 AM on Sunday morning, followed by Morning Prayer at 9:30 AM, and the Holy Communion at 10:00 AM. Fellowship and refreshments follow Services, with a potluck luncheon on the last Sunday of each month. We also celebrate the Holy Communion every Wednesday at 12:10 PM. For more information you will want to visit our parish website at:

In this blog I plan to comment on the life and ministry of Holy Cross Anglican Church and the Reformed Episcopal Church/Anglican Church in North America. I will also be writing about classical Anglican theology, spirituality and liturgics, as well as Anglican history, my vision for the future of my parish and the Anglican Communion, and other topics that I think you will find interesting. 

Holy Cross Anglican Church is a faithful, friendly, vibrant and welcoming congregation. We draw worshippers from across central and eastern Nebraska, Iowa and South Dakota. Why do people drive so far to attend Holy Cross parish? Because they have found a church worth the drive! If you live within driving distance of Omaha, Nebraska, or ever find yourself passing through town, I hope that you will worship with us. I would also like to invite you to check back on this blog frequently. I believe that you will find the posts a blessing.
