Caring Mass and awards at St Patrick’s Cathedral, July 2018
Connected communities celebrating care and support throughout the Auckland diocese
St Patrick’s Cathedral was packed on Wednesday, July 25th for the Caring Mass celebrated by Bishop Patrick Dunn.
Thanks to our donors, supporters, representatives from Catholic primary and secondary schools and charities and social services providers who had applied to the Foundation for a grant in 2018, for joining in worship and fellowship for this special mass of caring.
Every charity who applied for a grant from the Foundation in 2018, irrespective of outcome, were invited to select a recipient who ‘showed outstanding care and commitment to caring for others in their community’ to receive a Caring Award from our patron, Bishop Patrick Dunn. Every Catholic school throughout the diocese was also invited to do the same.
