Holy Cross Retreat is a spiritual home to a large community of families who worship at Holy Cross and form an integral part of a spiritual family together with the Passionist community. They attend the regular Sunday Mass in the Chapel and special services when they are held in the grounds, including Christmas Eve.

The Holy Cross Centre is a retreat and conference facility which is open to any groups who wish to use the facilities.
