We would like to offer you a warm welcome to the website of Holy Cross Church, home to the parish of Holy Cross and St. Luke's Parish, Harlow.  The foundation stone of our church building was laid by Bishop Fey, in 1962, and the church was opened in May 1963.  The church was consecrated in 1998, after a number of changes, and in 2002, Holy Cross and St Luke’s joined together.  We are also twinned with a parish in South Africa, Regina Coeli, who we keep in regular communication with.  We are lucky to have both a Parish Priest, Father Bernard Soley, and a Parish Deacon, Reverend Anthony Rowley, who both work hard to make the parish a loving and spiritual place to both pray and worship in a variety of ways.

God Bless you all.
