A new use has been found for a well-known downtown building.
On Aug. 28, Holy Cross Lutheran Church unveiled the name “Holy Cross Lutheran Outreach Center” for the building that formerly housed Wood Family Funeral Home.
“Holy Cross Lutheran Church thanks the Wood family for their many years of service to the Ste. Genevieve Community, including to many of our own members and families,” Pastor Craig Reiter said. “We also thank them for giving us the opportunity to continue serving Ste. Genevieve community families through this building in new ways. As the Lord has loved us, we look for opportunities to love and care for those around us.
“This includes possible partnerships with other ministries to bring services to the community that we love. We are excited to see what the Lord has in store and we will update the public on facility plans at a future time.”
