With a role to provide competitive loans for building and development projects and an annual distribution to the Bishop of Christchurch, the $900,000 distribution goes a long way towards helping our bishop support organisations whose role is to care for youth, those in education, hospital, prison, and for the formation of priests – enriching our local community’s spiritual, physical and communal needs.
The values-based approach to investing and lending allows CDF members to invest in the good works of the Catholic Diocese of Christchurch, supporting:
Catholic Social Services
counselling, courses, food bank
Catholic Youth Team
events, youth worker training, Mission Team
in hospitals, prisons and universities
Catholic Education Office
sacramental music programme
education and formation of our priests.
“The Catholic Youth Team is a vital part of the life of the Diocese and have supported our parish and youth many times over the last year with retreat days for school kids, music ministry as well as youth group events. Our young people always look forward to their events and interacting with young people from across the Diocese.” Sarah Blair – Youth Minister St Peter Chanel Parish Waimakariri
