  • Holy Cross Parish invites you to their first Trunk-or-Treat event at the BS Center parking lot, 6:00 PM.  Join in the spooktacular fun as children trick-or-treat from trunk to trunk, to get their bags filled with goodies! *Please be mindful of your costume choices.  We want you to have a good time and respect our Catholic values which include Saintly figures of virtue, strength, and grace instead of the secular emphasis on spooks.

  • Creative costumes and parishioner Saints are encouraged to host a “trunk” at this year’s event.  Arrive donned in costume as you park alongside “Trunk-or-Treat” street to treat all who dare to take the journey.  For all the fun-filled details, complete the registration and be sure to review the rules of the road at Holy Cross Parish Trunk-or-Treat sign up.
