Because our Priest at our parent church in McComb transferred to another parish effective August 1, 2016 and Christ the Saviour has not yet been assigned a new Priest, Holy Cross Orthodox Mission is currently inactive. We will update this website when services resume.
Services of Holy Cross Orthodox Mission are normally held at:
Holy Rosary Catholic Church
900 Dabbs Street, Hattiesburg
(see "Driving Directions")

Christ the Saviour in McComb, Mississippi
Holy Cross is a mission station of the Orthodox Church in America. Our parent church is Christ The Saviour Orthodox Church in McComb, Mississippi, an easy drive 70 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 already, 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.
On the first or second Saturday of every month at 10 am, Father Benedict of our parent church celebrates Divine Liturgy in Hattiesburg. Occasionally, however, we are unable to have Divine Liturgy for a particular month. Please see the date posted at the top of this page, or our "Schedule of Services" link at left, which will always be up-to-date. We have Reader's Vespers (evening prayer service led by a layman) every Friday night at 6 pm. All of our services are held at Holy Rosary Catholic Church (click "Driving Directions" above or on the left). We would like to thank our friends at Sacred Heart Catholic Church for their support and for the use of Holy Rosary.
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 and get the most up-to-date information on our services.
"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."
Christ is risen! Indeed He is risen!
