St Patrick's DRS honoured by TCI. The Catholic Institute of Aotearoa New Zealand. The Catholic Institute and Good Shepherd College are joining forces next year to become Te Kupenga – Catholic Leadership Institute, with the new tertiary qualifications provider to be called the Catholic Theological College. To mark the final TCI graduation event the TCI Council would like to honour a small group of TCI graduates as TCI Exemplars – graduates who demonstrated academic excellence during their study with TCI, with a commitment to personal growth in faith and who are living out their better informed faith in service to others.

Bishop Steve celebrates the achievements of Teresa Rush and Donna Vincent from Tauranga who received Graduate Certificates in Leadership and Catholic culture, Angela Moeke from Taupō who received a TCI Exemplar Award and Damian Robertson from Rotorua who received a Certificate in Christian Studies - Christian Ministry and a TCI Exemplar Award.

Amazing Mini Vinnies finding ways to serve the community. They held a car wash after Mission Sunday mass and raised $170 which will go to our local SVDP Society. Last week they held their annual Lemonade sale and made $300 which will be donated to Kids Can. Congratulations to this small but motivated group of Y4-6 students who are finding ways to put their faith into action.
