Update 1/14/21: we are following the guidance of state and local officials, as well as the guidance of the Episcopal Diocese of New York in regards to phased reopening when it is safe. As of January, we continue to have socially distanced services with many changes (e.g., physical distancing protocols, mask use, sanitation, reduced capacity, contact tracing and sign-ins, and Eucharist in one kind). However, the situation is evolving and we continue to monitor. We continue to broadcast online for those who cannot or prefer not to attend in person, and for times when meeting in person is not advised. Coffee hour and hospitality continue to be on hold. Vestry meetings and the Annual Meeting will be online. Our Thrift Shop is still open. If you would like an invitation to our zoom meetings (English) or facebook live (espanol), please call (845) 331-6796 or email us at holycrosskingston(dot)org(at)gmail(dot)com. Please contact the church, Father Frank, or Madre Filomena with any questions.
Our parish members come from diverse cultural backgrounds and a wide variety of religious traditions within the universal church. Our vision is to be a unified congregation that worships in two languages but otherwise strives to be one in all other aspects of our common life. Mass is offered in both English and Spanish.
Welcome to All
We welcome first-time visitors, regardless of denomination. All baptized persons are welcome to share the sacraments of the Lord’s Body and Blood. Our faith community makes every effort to be welcoming and embracing without being overwhelming or invasive.
Our parish is committed to serving the needs of those who live on the social and economic margins of society with various efforts directed toward those in need in the wider community.
