The Orthodox Church of the Holy Cross began with permission from the late Metropolitan Ireney to found an Orthodox Church in southern New Jersey. After a number of organizational meetings and the participation of the dean Fr. John Nehrebecki, the celebration of the first Divine Liturgy occurred on September 16, 1973 at a school in Cherry Hill. Shortly after that, Fr. Anthony Pluth was ordained to the priesthood and assigned as pastor, a position he held until 1986. From 1975 until 1984, the community utilized space within the hall of a local Roman Catholic Church until purchasing the current building. The parish membership of approximately one hundred adults is represented by many different backgrounds: Arabic, Carpatho-Russian, Greek, Russian, Serbian, and Ukrainian, as well as many converts to the Orthodox Faith from both inside and outside southern New Jersey.

Divine Liturgy is celebrated every Sunday at 9:00 a.m. and Vespers every Saturday at 5:00 p.m.

Services are in English.
