As a special Year of Mercy initiative, this video for Caring Sunday (31st of July) was commissioned by the Diocese of Dunedin to illustrate some of the wide range of caring actions that go on across our Diocese, often unseen. We hope to inform, to encourage volunteer and financial contributions and to acknowledge those in our midst who, like those in the video, are caring for others in practical ways.
St. Peter's College in Auckland have generously chosen the Dunedin former refugees as the focus for their mission fundraising this year. To date the students have raised over $8,000 in funds to provide the former refugees with resettlement assistance. And they are not done yet! They will be working hard in the next two terms to raise more funds. Jodi Kuran, teacher on the philosophy and theology faculty, and Damaris Kingdon, coordinator for the Edmund Rice network, were in Dunedin this month to make a connection with some of the people working on the ground with the former refugees; Fr. Ivica Gregurec (Anglican priest on the Dunedin Churches Welcome Refugees committee) and Pat Robertson (Red Cross Volunteer).
