From the Rector

Father O 

   The Rev. Kwabena Owusu-Afriyie


Welcome to The Church of the Holy Cross, North Plainfield, a parish in the Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey. We are a welcoming and friendly community that loves to worship fellowship and connect to one another and our world. We are simply our brother’s and sister’s keeper, supporting one another in our common search for a deeper knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We are a multi-national, multi-cultural, diverse community.  Our doors are wide open, ready to welcome home all God’s children, regardless of race, gender, creed, sexual orientation or socio-economic status. We are not judgmental; we acknowledge Jesus as our only perfect example whom we endeavor to emulate in our day-to-day walk of faith.

Where ever you are in your faith journey, we encourage you to look to Jesus, the pioneer and perfect example of our faith. And when you are in North Plainfield area, remember to drop by and be part of our journey. A warm welcome always awaits you here at Holy Cross.

And remember always, that you are a beloved of God.


Fr. Kwabena Owusu-Afriyie (Fr. O)
