Welcome to Holy Cross!
As Pastor of Holy Cross I would like to welcome you to our website and invite you to visit us in Hermitage, Pennsylvania. This year, in 2021, we celebrate our 115th year in witnessing for Christ and our Holy Orthodox Faith. We welcome all to witness our Faith in action through our liturgical services celebrated in the English language and our warm outreach to you. I look forward to meeting with you and personally talking with you.
V. Rev. Fr. George J. Treff
"A perfect man is one who by means of self control fights against temptation subject to his will, and who endures with patience trials that are contrary to his wishes. And an entire man is one whose practice of the virtues is completed by spiritual knowledge, and whose contemplation does not remain without practical effect."
(Saint Maximos the Confessor)
