Fr Tony

Fr Tony Ricard

Father Tony Ricard and his incredible connection with the Mother Of Divine Mercy Refuge Community here in Auckland, New Zealand was one of the great miracles of our 2014 Eucharistic Convention. “How Did You Know?” he asked me after I suggested he needed to visit the Refuge sometime before the opening of our event this year. “I didn’t know” was my response, “but this was obviously what the Lord had in mind as He perfected the human planning of this most amazing event that is the Eucharistic Convention” I responded. This is what God does if we put ourselves at His service. It happens time after time, year after year. Enjoy these videos; I know I did. JOHN PORTEOUS

Martha Fernandez-Sardina

Father Allan Jones SM of The Catholic Enquiry Centre in New Zealand recommended Martha Fernandez-Sardina to us as a possible speaker for our convention. Father Allan suggested she was one of the top lay speakers on the Catholic Faith he had heard. When you listen to Martha give a presentation it is easy to see why Fr Allan was so enthusiastic about her inclusion into our programme this year. Sit back and enjoy these videos – you won’t be disappointed.

Susana Fiu Fetaiai

Susana Fiu Fetaiai is affectionately known as the Mother Teresa of Auckland where she runs a refuge for women and children, many who have been traumatised by family violence.

In 2012 Susana was a semi-finalist in the Kiwibank New Zealander of the Year promotion – here is what they said about her:

As the manager of Mother of Divine Mercy Refuge, one of the largest and busiest women’s refuge organisations in New Zealand, Susana has become mother to many hundreds of disadvantaged and abused children, young teenagers and their mothers; all of whom were victims of domestic violence.

Her service to the community has been extensive and is best encapsulated in the many services and groundbreaking programs that she has championed to eliminate the reoccurrence of domestic violence in families. In doing so, she has impacted on the lives, and future of several hundred families in Auckland.

The outcomes she has achieved from her work have been outstanding with many couples openly expressing their gratitude to Susana and her team at Mother Divine Mercy. She has helped heal broken hearts, broken lives and broken spirits.

It was our privilege to have Susana as a speaker at our 2014 Convention – we invite you to hear what she had to say in this video.
