I think in British English, it should be
jacket, which. Am I correct?

She limped with her right leg, and in her brown knitted jacket, that was faded by the sun and washed out by the rain, she looked like a poor, wretched, dirty servant.

Is the part in boldface correct? Should it be jacket that or jacket, which?

Thanks.

We need to make a solid determination to spread our religious faith throughout our lives.

Is the part in boldface correctly phrased? If not, how should it be phrased?

Thanks.
