Love One Another Capital Campaign 2021

Holy Cross, Bristol

Our Parish Roots

Formed in 2009 through the merger of Holy Name of Jesus in Wilmot and St. Scholastica (formerly St. Michael and St. Mary) in Bristol, Holy Cross Parish is one parish with two worship sites. Since the mid-1800s, the rural Catholic communities that make up Holy Cross Parish have shared pastors, parish leaders, and ministries. Holy Cross Parish is a legacy of love, perseverance, dedication, and faith. The faith of our predecessors prevailed through prejudice, fire, persecution, closing and razing of church buildings, debt, and scandal. Despite many hardships, the desire of parishioners in our area to worship together kept the Catholic faith alive. They rose to meet the challenges of their day. They came together, sacrificed, rebuilt, and forged ahead. The baton is now in our hands. As Jesus’ disciples in this time and place in history, we are called to continue Jesus’ mission as a strong Catholic presence in our community.

Both locations of Holy Cross Parish have buildings and grounds needs that must be addressed to continue to grow our faith, mission, and ministry. The parking lots at our Bristol and Wilmot sites need to be repaired to eliminate hazardous conditions. Once repaired, paved, and striped, they need to be regularly sealed and striped to maintain a safe environment for parishioners, visitors, and the Head Start preschool program. Needed improvements to our Wilmot worship site include new pews, new flooring, and renovating the restrooms.


Seniors are the backbone of Holy Cross Parish. Funds are requested to develop and expand ministry to seniors in the parish and community. We will use these funds to help offset expenses for the Senior Social Group, such as events, outreach, and outings.
