In August, a number of students volunteered to assist with an event titled ‘Cuppa and cupcakes for Caritas’, which was held after the 8.30am Mass at Christ the Living Vine Church in Australind.
Students baked cupcakes and served tea and coffee to the parishioners in exchange for a donation for Caritas.
It was the first morning tea held since COVID-19 restrictions were lifted in WA. The event was well received by the Parish Community and a total of $630 was raised.
Caritas is a Catholic Agency for International Aid and Development. Caritas Australia works through the principles and practice of community development, supporting people to help themselves out of poverty, hunger and injustice. Caritas Australia works to bring relief and aid to people whose lives have been devastated by natural disaster or conflict.
Caritas is Latin for Love and Compassion. These two qualities are central to the Caritas organisation and Compassion is one of the Colleges Mercy values. The College encourages all students to integrate these values into all aspects of their lives.
We are very pleased to see our students demonstrating this value by volunteering for this event.
