What is a community? How does it happen? Is it just a nice idea? At Holy Cross we are a big, diverse family and we take very seriously Christ’s command that we love one another. At our annual parish retreat, we also remember that it can be a lot of fun! In the peaceful surrounds of the Silver Wattle Quaker Centre at Lake George we learn together about God’s work in the world and how we can be a part of it. We enjoy adventures, creative activities, games, and great food. The date of the 2019 Parish retreat is 24-26th August.
Have you ever noticed that even when life’s hectic schedule pauses, it is difficult to quieten your mind? Our inner noise can rob us of peace. God offers a peace beyond our ability to cultivate ‘calm’, and in our many working and caring roles this can be a sustaining life-line. The Holy Cross women’s retreat is for women with a hectic schedule and a busy mind. In the quietness of Silver Wattle Quaker Centre, set on the rim of lake George, we find space; space to connect with creator and creation, ourselves and each other.
