Catholic Charities Thanksgiving Mass and Charity Expo
Not all schools do fundraising for Catholic Charities - some of them like St Patrick's Special School support us by attending our annual Thanksgiving Mass & Charity Expo.
Catholic Charities was very pleased that students from St Patrick's Special School were able to attend our sixth Annual Thanksgiving Mass & Charity Expo (on December 4) and also take part in the Offertory Procession. They also got involved in the group photograph of students who attended the Mass. It was a very large group as you can see from the photo below!
