about holy cross

We are a welcoming parish of active, mature adults in rural Albemarle County. Some mornings, the sound of crowing roosters and bleating sheep accompany our choir. Many of our members live in Batesville, Crozet, Wintergreen, Afton, and Charlottesville. While some of us have attended Holy Cross for decades, many of us joined more recently. At Holy Cross, we are a community. We already we look forward to welcoming you.

our worship

As a parish within the Episcopal Church, our church uses the Book of Common Prayer, 1979. Every Sunday, we give thanks for our salvation in Christ by listening to God’s Word and celebrating the Holy Eucharist (Lord’s Supper), in accordance with Jesus’ teaching in the New Testament. Our worship style is traditional, with a balance of solemnity and joy. All are welcome at the table of the Lord.
