Auckland

On 2 July, Raechelle Taulu, Principal of Marist College will be plunging into the ice-cold water for the ‘Iceberg’ swim on Waiheke Island. Raechelle is swimming to raise funds for St Patrick’s Cathedral. Can you "jump in" and support Raechelle? You can find out more about the swim at: https://oceanswim.co.nz/events/the-iceberg-waiheke/. Raechelle will be joined by Sarah Dwan, Principal of St Mary's College, and James van Schie, General Manager of the Auckland Catholic Diocese.

We are blessed with a very beautiful and unique historic church, perhaps one of the most prayed-in buildings in New Zealand…. a House of God, an Icon of Christ, the Mother Church, a Place of Prayer, an Oasis of Peace.

St Patrick's Cathedral is open and has a bright future but needs help to recover from the last couple of years. C'mon Marist Whanau, please join me in sending a strong message of support to the Cathedral team. St Pat's is an important part of our community so please support this fundraiser.

You can sponsor Raechelle’s swim by making a tax-deductible gift through this page to the Bishop – with all proceeds going to help the Cathedral of St Patrick and St Joseph.
