About Holy Cross Church (Holy Cross Shrine) – The jewel in Bambolim’s crown is undisputedly the Shrine of the Holy Cross. The history of this Church dates back to 1995 when the foundation stone was laid by Archbishop Raul Gonsalves on May 21, 1995, and the Shrine was completed, blessed and inaugurated by the Archbishop on October 13, 1996.
Revered by people of all faiths, there is hardly anyone that passes by without acknowledging its presence and seeking its blessings with a bow of the head, a flying kiss, a sharp loud honk or the sign of the cross. Most stop and pay obeisance to the Holy Cross by offering garlands of flowers, candles or cash. A shining illustration of Goa’s celebrated communal harmony it is. From being known as Bambolecho Khuris, Milagrincho Khuris and later being Christened as Fulancho Khuris, the Holy Cross stands in all simplicity as a beacon of hope and faith.
