Caring Mass 2020
On Wednesday the 22nd of July, our community gathered together for our annual Caring Mass and Awards at Christ the King parish in Owairaka. Representatives from the organisations and charities we support with grants joined us, as well as students from our Catholic schools, and friends and supporters. Our thanks to you all for joining us for this special occasion. Our congratulations also to everyone who received a Caring Award for showing outstanding commitment to caring for others in our diocese.
You supported a food project in South Hokianga
A request for help for families experiencing hardship through COVID-19 from the parish priest of Okaihau, Fr Richard Cortes resulted in a community-led food project for families in south Hokianga. Thanks to a team of wonderful volunteers, and a grant from the Caring Foundation, over 60 food parcels were distributed to families in the Whirinaki Valley, Pakanae and Waiwhatawhata. Volunteers bagged and packed the food parcels and then distributed them to the families. We are so grateful to all the volunteers and parishioners who got this project off the ground. Another community project that you helped fund.
