Holy Cross is much as previous reviewer reports, with an unfortunate addition - the pastor proved worthless in an unwanted divorce, and the leadership impotent. Rather than encouraging reconciliation and Christian love/Golden Rule, the rector instead enabled & gave moral cover to the spouse who bailed out of the marriage, and who maintained an unprecedented level of hostility for four years. He refused to act as a mediator, referring to requests for such as ??triangling??. No moral suasion was applied to encourage the parties to talk, or to cooperate ?? none. The spouse who wanted to remain in the marriage was alienated, and kept from the baptism of his daughters, this with the rector??s approval. The idea of marriage as a Christian sacrament, and something the church has a role in preserving, proved to be empty. It was a grim, life-changing experience for a member who??d been there since shortly after the founding of the church.

Holy Cross welcomes people from a wide variety of backgrounds. People attending the service wear everything from suits to jeans. The rector is intellectual, but makes the Bible personal and applicable to daily life. The music combines both traditional and contemporary elements. Members seem to represent a huge variety of backgrounds, including non-liturgical, Jewish, nearly every denomination, as well as people who have not historically attended church.
