When Father Tony came to our 2014 Eucharistic Convention, he asked me a question.   “How did you know?”  he asked.  “What do you mean, Fr Tony?”, I replied. “How did you know I needed to come to work with these kids at the Mother of Divine Mercy Refuge?”

Father Tony fell in love with the Refuge Group and vowed to return.  When invited to do so for our 25th Anniversary event, Fr Tony took up the opportunity without hesitation. “It’s like I’ll be coming home” was his enthusiastic response.

So enthusiastic are the Mother of Divine Mercy Refuge Group that Fr Tony has agreed to return, they have organised a special event for him starting at 4.30pm on Thursday, 5th April 2018,  to take place at the Te Atatu Peninsula Community Centre, 595 Te Atatu Rd, Te Atatu Peninsula, Auckland


There is no charge for entry.
While this event is focused on the youth, the organisers tell me that everybody is welcome to attend.

Joining Father Tony will be RabelzTheMC and Stephen Eguino; it promises to be a fabulous event.

See the programme draft below – if you can find the time do make an effort to go along; it will be a night to remember.
