Great results for the CDF in 2021-2022

In July the CDF published their Summary Annual Report, sharing the good news that during the 2021-22 financial year, the fund made a healthy distribution of $450,000 to Bishop Michael.

With a role to provide competitive loans for building and development projects and an annual distribution to the Bishop of Christchurch, the $450,000 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

Chaplaincy Services

in hospitals, prisons and universities

Catholic Education Office

sacramental music programme

National Seminary 

education and formation of our priests.

“The Catholic Youth Team is a vital part of the life of the Diocese and has 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
