Catholic Charities November Newsletter 2020
Giving thanks in difficult times
This year we have had to get used to the 'new normal' way of operating under COVID-19. For Catholic Charities this has meant some of our events had to be amended or cancelled like the annual Easter egg collection and delivery, as they couldn't fit within the regulations specified under the South Australian restrictions.
Also affected is our Catholic Charities Expo which usually follows the Thanksgiving Mass held in December. While the Thanksgiving Mass will still go ahead - with a reduced attendance - the Expo has had to be cancelled. Having an Expo that featured charity booths along with a BBQ as well as lots of students trying to maintain social distancing was not considered possible.
The Catholic Charities Thanksgiving Mass is an important event in the Archdiocese. It gives us the chance to recognise and thank our donors especially now that we have our new Archbishop Patrick O'Regan on board.
As Chair of Catholic Charities I want to thank you again for helping us support our eight agencies which continue to work with the vulnerable and disadvantaged in our community especially during the difficulties that are raised living with COVID-19.
• Aboriginal Catholic Ministry • Catherine House • Centacare Catholic Family Services • Calvary Ain Karim • SA Catholic Deaf Association • Hutt St Centre • Our Lady of La Vang & St Patrick’s Special School
On behalf of Catholic Charities I would like to thank you for your commitment to assisting those in need within our 'own backyard'. Your support this year has been incredible.
Numbers will be limited for the lunchtime Thanksgiving Mass on December 2 so if you are keen to attend please RSVP before the deadline of November 27 to Mary Coombe Tel: 08 8210 8117.
