Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Spring is in the air at the Church of the Holy Cross and in a pocket-sized flower bed of just two square meters, usually the destination of last Christmas' poinsettias, Palermo's first sustainability concept of City Forest was developed to become a microcosm paradise for nature. The project is also the first of its kind in a church yard within the Diocese in Europe, Church of England. Donations will help Holy Cross Palermo promote the City Forest concept to increase awareness on "building nature rather than destroying it", and funds will be used to buy on a regular basis the bird food and new plants which will be given to the local community and visitors. The City Forest will be officially opened with a blessing ceremony on Sunday the 18th of April 2021 in conjunction with Earth Day on the 22nd of April.

If you donate it is vital that you indicate the intended beneficiary chaplaincy as “City Forest Holy Cross Palermo”.

About the charity

We are a Mission-shaped diocese - a network of Christian communities and congregations serving Anglicans and other English-speaking Christians across an enormous geographical area.We minister in a myriad of situations, in most of which the Church of England has scarcely been heard of, questions of establishment scarcely arise, civic links may take a very different form, and de­nomi­na­tional identity is often much less important than the language of worship. English churches and congregations have been established on the Continent since before the Reformation. The number of these grew to such an extent that in 1633 congregations of the Church of England in all foreign countries were placed under the jurisdiction of the Bishop of London. Anglican dioceses and then provinces were later formed in all parts of the world outside the United Kingdom.The Diocese in Europe is made up of churches and congregations spread across forty-two countries on three continents, and covering one sixth of the earth’s land surface. And yet, this is a Diocese of the Church of England.
