Week of September 14, 2020

 HOLY CROSS DAY: September 14. Helena, the mother of Constantine, on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land found what she believed to be the sites of Jesus’ crucifixion and burial in what is now Jerusalem ; Church of the Holy sepulchre. The festival provides the church an opportunity to lift up the victory of the cross with a spirit of celebration. (Numbers 21:4b-9; Psalm 98:1-4; 1 Corinthians 1:18-24; John 3:3-17)
