The Annual Catholic Charities Golf Day raises funds to support Centacare’s Auricht House which provides respite care for families with children with disabilities. The event is possible due to our Major Sponsors, Southern Cross Care and the Whelan family. Also the dedicated support of our Tee sponsors and players continues to make the day a success. 

Catholic Charities would like to thank the sponsors of the event, the Whelan family and Southern Cross Care, and the Catholic Charities Golf Day Committee, especially Peter McCarthy and Michael Griffin. 

The 2019 event was held on September 16, 2019 at Westward Ho Golf Club, where over a 100 golfers took part. For more information please contact the office via Email: charities@adelaide.catholic.org.au

Easter Eggs for Catholic Charities Agencies 2019

SAC Easter Eggs 002 (2).jpg

The Easter Egg delivery was scheduled for April 12 this year as the schools broke up early for Easter. This made sure the Easter Eggs were dropped off to Catherine House and Centacare in plenty of time to get them out to their clients before Easter!  A fantastic effort by the Year 10 students at St Aloysius College!  Well done girls! 

Again the Easter Eggs were delivered via trolleys, washing baskets, boxes and bags.  

Catholic Charities would like to thank the students for their generosity. Photos from this year's delivery can be seen here!
