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.  


The joy of believing in Jesus that fills our hearts overflows into service to those around us  as expressed through our many group activities. These include our men’s group, women’s group, children’s Mass, Rosary group, adult catechesis, adoration, solemn benediction,  parish choir, altarserver’s club, parish working bees, sacramental programs and our  annual celebration of the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross on 14 September. 

We welcome all to our parish community and look forward to walking with you on your faith  journey.
