Congregation Description:Oakdale is a first-ring suburb, population of around 28,000, mostly middle-class, with some greying of the community as the need for senior housing increases. There are many minority families moving into the neighborhood, particularly in the Gentry Apartments and Oakdale Village Apts. Worship is on Sundays at 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. and we are experimenting with a Wed evening 6:30 during the summer. Sunday school is at 9:30 a.m. and Confirmation is Wed nights at 6:30 p.m. Holy Cross is involved in Loaves & Fishes, serving meals bi-monthly; we support the North Saint Paul Food Shelf and Building Bridges, which is a community effort to help at-risk kids in the school district with school supplies, tutoring and other community events. Holy Cross just celebrated its 50th anniversary as a congregation last year. The challenge is to live out a spirit of abundance in the wake of the economic recession to help fund the vital ministries of this congregation.
