Our Patron Saint

The dedication of the Church in Eastleigh to the Holy Cross derives from its exaltation as the symbol of Christian faith on which Jesus was crucified and died for the salvation of the world. 

In Holy Cross Church there is a statue of St Helena who was the mother of the Emperor Constantine who was the first Christian Emperor of Rome.  She was famed for her piety and was very generous to the poor.  She travelled to the Holy Land in the 4th Century and by tradition found the remains of the True Cross as well as establishing Churches in Jerusalem and at other Holy Sites. 

The feast of the Exaltation of the Cross is on 14th September and of St Helena on 18th August.
