Our work caring for the environment seeks to honour our calling to be stewards of God’s creation (Genesis 1:28 and 2:15) and the mission goals of the Anglican Communion:

To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation, and sustain and renew the life of the earth.

Anglican communion marks of missioN

At Holy Cross, we are blessed to be surrounded by the Box Gum woodlands of Mt Majura and the beauty of spaces such as the Dickson Wetlands, shared with the animals and plants of the Canberra region.

Increasingly, we are becoming aware of the fragility of creation, and the growing need to act both locally and globally towards more responsible care for our environment.

The Holy Cross Social Justice and Environment Group seeks to lead us in this work. Recent actions of the group have included offering reusable items such as metal straws and cotton produce bags to reduce plastic waste pollution.
