The Catholic Charismatic Renewal of the Allentown Diocese

Exaltation of the Holy Cross

We Answer

Be Not Afraid!  Be Courageous!  Be Opened!

The above are quotes from the Gospels, our Holy Fathers, and from Jesus himself!

At Exaltation of the Holy Cross Prayer Community, it's our mission to help you explore your relationship with our Triune  God and improve those meaningful relationships in your family life. Join us each Monday and experience the warmth of faith and the strength of our community.

We consider it an honor to pray for you and with you for any and all needs as well as some study of what the Word says about the world today.

What Do We Teach?

We teach the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church as they come to us from the Magisterium.  Rooted in Sacred Scripture, the Church Fathers, and Sacred Tradition we constantly consult these resources as well as our own Catechism of the Catholic Church.

Who Is Our Priest?

Fr. Cliff Bishop was ordained a Roman Catholic Priest in 1998 and has served as Assistant Pastor, Campus Minister, Nursing Home Chaplain and Pastor.  He was recently the Assistant Liaison of the Charismatic Movement under the late Rev. Larry J. Hess, until Father Hess' death in early 2014.

What Are Our Core Values?

Just as Jesus said in the Beatitudes, blessed are the poor and the hungry. Our mission is not just to love one another, but to make sure we spread the love of the Gospels everywhere.
