Congratulations go out to Nancy Takach who has been awarded the Spirit of Holy Cross Award by the U.S. Province of the Holy Cross Priests and Brothers. This award recognizes laity who, through their collaboration with members of the Congregation of Holy Cross, have participated in and supported the mission of the Congregation. Nancy is receiving the award at this weekend’s 10:30 am Mass. Our nomination to the province read: On behalf of the pastoral team of Holy Cross Parish we wish to nominate Nancy Takach for “The Spirit of Holy Cross Award” for 2019-2020. As a parishioner of Holy Cross, Nancy served as the parish secretary first at St. Stanislaus Parish and now at Holy Cross Parish since the temporary merger of the two faith communities. She has ministered to our parish community for 37 years. Nancy is a member of the 10:30 Mass choir, the St. Vincent de Paul Society, and a former member of the parish religious education program. She and her late husband, Rick, are well known and respected by the parish community, and she has great respect and affection for the Congregation and its many members that she has come to know over the years. We believe that Nancy truly embodies what this award stands for, thus our reason for choosing Nancy as our parish recipient.
Thank you, Nancy, for all your contributions to Holy Cross Parish over the years!
