About Us

Our History

Holy Cross Parish, located in South Easton, MA, was founded in 1966 and is staffed by the Congregation of Holy Cross Priests and Brothers.  We are a community of 1,300 families, blessed with many young families and members of all ages. Originally these families were from South Easton, but over the years we have welcomed and continue to welcome new members from surrounding communities. We are followers of Jesus Christ in the Roman Catholic tradition, and part of the Diocese of Fall River.

We seek to fulfill the vision of Vatican II. The parish strives to be a community where everyone is accepted. We seek to practice justice by using our God-given gifts of time, talent and treasure to understand and reach out to those in need.

Our Mission

Holy Cross Parish, a community centered in the Eucharist, is committed in faith and love of Jesus Christ to fulfill the profoundly human and spiritual needs of its parishioners and the larger community it serves.  We seek to inspire all, through deeds and by example, to do the work of Christ:  to make God known, loved, and served.
