Schools support Catholic Charities



More than 400 supporters of Catholic Charities attended the fourth annual Thanksgiving Mass celebrated by Fr Philip Marshall VG in St Francis Xavier’s Cathedral on Tuesday December 6.

About 220 students from St Teresa’s School Brighton, Antonio Catholic School Morphett Vale, St Aloysius College and Mercedes College participated in the Mass, which was followed by an expo of Catholic agencies. The expo included representatives from the Aboriginal Catholic Ministry, Centacare Catholic Family Services, Hutt St Centre, Ain Karim: Mary MacKillop Care, Our Lady of La Vang Special School and Mercy House of Welcome, who provided information on their services that help those in need in the local community. 

The students also enjoyed a sausage sizzle, run by staff from Catholic Church Insurance and Centacare, along with face painting, bubble making and other activities.  To see more  photographs from the day visit the Catholic Charities website
