"Welcome to Holy Cross Roman Catholic Church of Brooklyn. Our prayer for you is the knocking at your heart door from the God of all grace brings you back home. I share with you a parish of where reconciliation can begin for you. Furthermore we hope that your home be a reflection of the joy and peace that God has promised to all of His children who follow Him. In 1848, when the city of Flatbush in Brooklyn was still part of the Archdiocese of New York, the parish of the Holy Cross was established to serve the growing Catholic population in Flatbush, Brooklyn. Holy Cross was the first parish, the mother church of all the Flatbush parishes."
