Sponsor a paver to build our labyrinth

Our Trinity labyrinth at Holy Cross and St Margaret’s is taking shape. You can be a part of it by sponsoring some of the thousand pavers that make it up. At $3 per paver, your contribution can help this beautiful place of prayerfulness grow. Leave a lasting footprint on our sacred land, and help bring the love of God to fellow pilgrims in the Inner North.

Contact treasurer@holycrosshackett.org.au to make a donation.

Knitted blankets warming peoples facing homelessness

The Holy Cross stitching group has been making knitted blankets for homeless people. This was a collective effort of the seven ladies in the group. The stitchers knitted squares and then sewed them together with a crocheted border. There are between 96 to 108 squares in the blanket. Contact admin@holycrosshackett.org.au for more information about the blankets and the work of our stitching group.

How good is your chocolate? Your Chocolate Ethical Shopping Guide

At Holy Cross, as we prepare for Easter, we have been thinking about chocolate as a consumer choice and as something we enjoy at the end of Lent to celebrate new life in the risen Jesus.

Block of chocolate and cocoa beans

Easter is the biggest chocolate shopping time of the year. But what’s really going into the chocolate we buy? There’s more than cocoa, dairy and sugar, there are hidden costs for vulnerable people, impoverished communities, and the environment.

Be Slavery FreeGreen AmericaINKOTAMighty Earth, and National Wildlife Federation surveyed the world’s biggest chocolate companies to find out what they are doing to eliminate child labour from their supply chains, ensure farmers make a living income from their work, and prevent environmental damage caused by deforestation. 

They have given each company a score across different categories so that you can buy Easter chocolates from the heart knowing which ones could be tainted by child labour and deforestation.
