1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month in the Annexe behind the Presbytery
Holy Cross is a welcoming, supportive and vibrant community of people who come together to share our faith in Jesus and to live it out by loving all around us. Our faith in Jesus is strengthened and renewed through our celebration of the sacraments of the Catholic Church, particularly the Holy Mass and Reconciliation. Our hope and prayer is that all people will come to be in a deep loving relationship with Jesus Christ and have a strong devotion to His holy mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Fr Terrence Millard
Fr Terrence Millard became the parish priest of Holy Cross Catholic Church, Woollahra in February, 2019, having previously served as an administrator at St Bernadette’s, Carlton while working in the Chancery of the Archdiocese of Sydney. Prior to that, Fr Terrence was the parish priest of St John Vianney and St Thomas More, Greenacre for 14 years and was also involved with the Charitable Works Fund, Catholic Cemeteries Board and Lakemba Catholic Schools Board.
While Fr Terrence has been actively involved with Catholic Church groups all his life, particu- larly the Servants of Jesus Community, he received a vocation to the priesthood later in life and was ordained in 1999. Prior to joining the priesthood, Fr Terrence was trained in finance and accounting and worked for prominent financial services firms in Sydney.
Since becoming a priest, Fr Terrence has been an active and devoted shepherd, gently accom- panying parishioners in the way of the Lord and the teachings of the Catholic Church. He is particularly passionate about assisting in the Christian formation of married couples, students and marginalised individuals, and building up communities guided by the Holy Spirit to do good works for all people.
Outside of his priestly ministry, Fr Terrence enjoys tennis, piano, cooking, swimming and brewing his own beer. He is also a life member of the NSW Rural Fire Service, having served for many years as the senior deputy captain of the Warringah Headquarters Brigade for which he received the National Service Medal from the Australian Government and Long Service Award from the NSW Government.
