Parish of Holy Cross-Saint John the Baptist


Welcome to the Parish of Holy Cross-Saint John the Baptist

                                                                                      "Christ in the City"

                                                                           A Ministry of the Capuchin Franciscans of the Archdiocese of New York
The mission of the parish of Holy Cross-St. John the Baptist, in the spirit of the Capuchin Franciscan order and the tradition of the Catholic Church, is to be Christ in the City—to assist in the spiritual, social, and personal development of the members of the parish, the community of midtown Manhattan, and the people of the New York metropolitan area. Within our parish, at either the Holy Cross or Saint John the Baptist location, individuals can seek peace, holiness, and sanctuary, alone or in the community. We are a responsive and evolving community which encourages growth in our relationship to God and to one another, so that through these relationships we can find strength, joy, and happiness.
