Ecumenical Ministry

NETWorks/Ecumenical Ministry: Holy Cross is the Catholic member in the Northlake-Embry Hills-Tucker area group of ecumenical churches representing a variety of Christian denominations that strive to provide a witness of Christian unity.

Our mission is to respond with the hospitality of Christ to the food and financial needs of residents and to partner with them to find long-term solutions to poverty. This is done through periodic communal worship services at Thanksgiving and Holy Week.  Holy Cross supports the ministry by providing volunteers.

One of ways NETWorks assists individuals in need in our community (Northlake, Embry Hills, Tucker) is by providing emergency food and other supplies.  NETWorks Cooperative Ministry is currently in need of toothbrushes and TRAVEL SIZE toothpaste. If you would like to donate, please place toothbrushes and toothpaste only in the box marked NETworks; attached to the St. Martin’s bin in the Gathering Area.

You can also drop off donations at the NETworks location: 2380 4th Street, Tucker, GA 30084 M-W-F from 10am to 1pm. If you have any questions please contact Lou Hightower (404)291-2363 or email   Thank you for your continued support!
