Parish Background

Holy Cross was founded by our Diocese as an Orthodox Christian outreach to the people of the greater Saint Croix Valley region, including the northeast suburbs of the Twin Cities metro area and the bordering communities of west-central Wisconsin. We began worshiping together in Saint Croix Falls, Wisconsin on Sunday, September 14, 1997 (the Feast of the Holy Cross). Most of our members are converts to the Orthodox Church.

Holy Cross Orthodox Christian Church is a mission parish of the Orthodox Church in America under the authority of Bishop Matthias of Chicago and the Diocese of the Midwest.

By the grace of God, we seek to become a growing community of believers and followers of Christ who will actively participate in His saving grace through worship, fellowship and love for our neighbors.

On May 27, 2007 our church began meeting at the Zion Lutheran Church in Chisago City, Minnesota.
