STATEMENT OF THE ARCHDIOCESE OF SAN ANTONIO ON RELIGIOUS
EXEMPTION LETTERS FOR VACCINATION AGAINST COVID-19
Holy Cross Catholic Church is located in D’Hanis, Medina County, in the Archdiocese of San Antonio, TX. Our parishioners reflect the evolution of our community; descendants of the original Alsatian and German settlers of D’Hanis which was founded in 1847; Hispanics descended from original Texas settlers who were in this area before Texas was a republic and others that came later; and a growing population of newer arrivals that enjoy our small town community atmosphere.
We also serve Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church in Yancey, Medina County, as a mission parish.
We are a parish heavily focused on the Sacraments and sacramental life, and many of the activities of our parish revolve around the Sacraments. We value the traditional and yet accept the new, hoping that all members find our faith strengthening celebrations of the Holy Mass fulfilling.
