The Parish Finances are managed by an accountant and a small Finance Committee. This Committee helps in the running of the Gift Aid Scheme. At the beginning of the financial year an appeal is made to join the scheme. The scheme raises over £8000, which is a little more than half of what our Parish has to pay towards the A.D.F. Diocesan Development Fund for schools.
The finance committee also handles monies from fairs and fetes.
The Roman Catholic Diocese of Southwark and the Parish of Holy Cross Church are committed to maintaining the highest standards of safeguarding in relation to children and vulnerable adults.
All parish members involved in activities with children, young people or vulnerable adults need to complete an application process, including references, and must obtain a DBS declaration.
We have a selection of Mass Cards and greeting cards for all occasions. First Communion gifts are usually available all year round.
We have the new Roman Sunday Missal, rosaries, statues, bibles, children’s books etc. We also stock Christmas cards and Advent calenders. The repository is open after 09:30 and 11:00 Mass on Sundays.
