Holy Cross is a mission station of the Orthodox Church in America. Our parent church is Christ the Saviour Orthodox Church in McComb, Mississippi, 75 miles west of Hattiesburg. Our community is made up of Orthodox Christians who live in the Hattiesburg area. Some of us were born into the Orthodox Church and others are converts to the faith. If you are an Orthodox Christian or if you're interested in learning more about Orthodoxy, we invite you to attend any of our services. We will be delighted to meet you.

We also have a Facebook page and invite you to join!  You'll be able to see and participate in interesting posts by our Group members.  

"The Orthodox Church is evangelical, but not Protestant. It is orthodox, but not Jewish. It is catholic, but not Roman. It isn't non-denominational - it is pre-denominational. It has believed, taught, preserved, and died for the Faith of the Apostles since the Day of Pentecost 2000 years ago."
