Radio Programme about Teresa House

Filed under: Teresa House — Tags: — nicksmyname @ 7:18 am

Radio National did a great programme about Cana Communities. Maybe because I miss Teresa House a bit I loved listening to it. It has a bit about Teresa House starring the fantastic Mario, but also the rest of Cana with a focus on spiritual aspects of Cana. Have a listen and if you’re feeling flush make a donation.

Article about Teresa House in the Sydney Morning Herald

Filed under: Stuff On the Web, Teresa House — nicksmyname @ 9:38 am

Sean managed to get a great article about Teresa House published in the “Icon” section of the Sydney Morning Herald on Saturday. “Icon” is the consumer IT section and the article is related to using the website to find volunteers, but it gives a good picture of Teresa House. Well done Sean!

The Teresa House Dinner Dance

Virginia gets down

We had our annual Fundraising Dinner Dance for Teresa House the weekend before last. There was months of preparation involved (mostly by Jannene, Mike and Chloe mind you!) but it was a brilliant night. We had about 200 people there and raised about $15,000 for Teresa House and Cana Communities. The highlight this year was once again the dancing competition. I think this pic of Vin was actually after the competition but if you go through the photo’s at this link there are some great shots.
Great night was had by all.

Since then unfortunately we had an incident with an aggresive guest, the house was burgled and the floor downstairs began to cave in so the euphoria has faded a little but never mind!
Thanks to all the friends who supported us by coming along or making donations. It really helps.
For the friends who didn’t; we’ll be back again next year!

Jason, Joy and Andrew on Christmas Morning

Jason, Joy and Andrew on Christmas MorningOriginally uploaded by NicksMyName.

On Christmas Eve I spent the night at Teresa House after going to the Cana Christmas Eve pary in Redfern Park. I’ve done this a few times and it’s a really fantastic way to start Christmas day.
It was a very quiet night with only a handful of guests. Unfortunately Maria was not in brilliant form in the morning and didn’t want to be in the picture. Here’s a picture of Jason, Joy and Andrew (the other volunteer) from that morning.
