Catholic Caring Foundation grants for 2019
Over 60 social service agencies and charities throughout the greater Auckland area (from the Far-North to the south of Auckland), were given a grant from the Foundation to help them continue their vital work in the community.
We could not have done this without the generous support of our compassionate donors, The Tindall Foundation, Trusts, parishioners and parishes, Catholic schools and those who have remembered a gift in their Will. Your support has a positive impact on so many in our community.

Caring Mass and awards at Christ the King, Owairaka, July 24th, 2019 at 11.30am
Connected communities celebrating care and support throughout the Auckland diocese
Thank you to everyone who joined us on Wednesday, July 24th, 2019 for the Foundation’s Caring Mass which was celebrated by Bishop Patrick Dunn. We were joined by supporters, organisations who were given a grant in 2019, school students from Catholic primary and secondary schools, and our diocesan team.
Bishop Pat encouraged all by saying that sometimes we feel tired for caring for others but that we shouldn’t give up. He said in his homily, ” The message from the Bible is we can’t walk away. The core message in the Gospels are feed the hungry, clothe the naked, visit the sick, support those who are in prison, help people in every need. That work lies in the very heart of the Gospel. We’ve got to keep on keeping on.”
Caring Awards were given to students and grant recipients who ‘showed outstanding care and commitment to caring for others in their community’.
