Catherine McAuley Leaders Fundraise for Mercy Works

Catherine McAuley School Leaders helped commemorate the anniversary of Mother Catherine McAuley’s death last Friday on 11th November by coming in early before school and making small tea cups from biscuits, marshmallows and lifesaver lollies. The effort was largely organised by Katrina Wehbe, Leader of Hospitality and Courtney Flack, Assistant Leader of Hospitality and was inspired by Catherine McAuley’s dying wish that the grieving sisters gathered around her bed were to “get a good cup of tea…when I am gone and comfort one another”. The students sold the eatable teacups at recess and lunch for a gold coin donation and raised $440 for Mercy Works Inc.
