Holy Cross Catholic Church Preparing for Centennial Celebration

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - The Holy Cross Catholic Church is preparing to celebrate 100 years of history! The church hosted a family night out event Sunday to help raise money for their centennial celebration! Parishiners and Coastal Bend residents had plenty to do. Merchandise booths with religious items were sold, as well as art work and food. Andrew Duarte, committee chairman at Holy Cross Catholic Church-- says the parish is a piece of history not many churches can claim.

"Saint Katherine Drexell walked these grounds and purchased the land because back then it had a nice view of the bay," said Duarte. "The property was purchased for the less fortunate, African-Americans and Native Americans that weren't allowed to worship in other churches."

Holy Cross Catholic Church will have their centennial celebration September 14. Everyone is invited to attend!
