You’re invited to celebrate together


All are warmly invited to a community picnic for our parish September 18th at noon at St Andrews Church following the morning Mass. This is our annual celebration of our parish as the feast day for St Croix Parish (the Exaltation of the Holy Cross) falls in September. It is an opportunity for parishioners from St Stephen, St Andrews and Campobello to come together as one parish.

Weather permitting, we will be using our green space along side of the church. If not, we can use the parish hall. Please bring your lawn chairs.

The parish will provide:

  • Lobster roll
  • Potato salad
  • Coleslaw
  • Ice cream

There will be a free will donation to cover costs.

***NOTE: If you have food allergies to any of the above, bring your own food.*** 

Please look for the sign-up sheet at the back of the church for the next 2 weeks to give us an idea of how many can make it and if you need a ride.

As per usual, many hands are always welcomed to help with ANYTHING. Please pass the word around those of the parish that may not be able to read this message.

Parish celebration for the Feast of the Holy Cross


September 14th is the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross after which the St Croix Parish is named. To celebrate this special anniversary, St Croix Parish will gather together on Saturday, September 18th at 5:00 pm at St Patrick's Hall in St Stephen. On the menu is corn on the cob, lobster rolls, and ice cream with blueberry sauce for dessert.

As this is a new annual event, we will alternate the host church each year between St Andrews and St Stephen. This year, the host is the St Stephen Church.

All parishioners from throughout Charlotte County are welcome. There will be a free will offering to cover costs.
