Statement of Faith

I believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit
and born of the virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of the saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.

Chapel Services

The Creston ministerial coordinates chapel services for Crestview Village and Swan Valley Lodge each week to minister to those who aren't able to attend a church gathering.


Volunteering as a family at the Ministerial Hamper Appeal continues to be be one of the strongest experiences of community that we know. It is a gathering of like-minded people who together value the truth that all human beings are to be loved. Each year we look forward to the appeal and the spirit of togetherness which it brings. 


“I was very pleased to have the opportunity through Holy Cross Parish to arrange for pick up and delivery of food hampers for 12 tenants of Glaser Terrace Housing of which I am a director. These tenants all have varying degrees of medical issues that impact there mobility. They also have limited resources. I informed the parish that these people where likely not aware of the Ministerial Association  Christmas food hamper program and as such arranged with Holy Cross to include their names as hamper recipients. On the day of Hamper pickup & delivery I loaded my vehicle with 12 hamper boxes and dropped them off at each tenants suite and spoke to them about this Christmas program. I was very moved with the thanks I received for including them in this valued and worthwhile program for needy individuals and families. Your support by way of donations of food and/or financial to this program is very worthwhile and will warm your heart and soul.”
