What a Celebration!

It was wonderful to be involved in the 50th Anniversary Celebrations at Leeds Trinity University on Wednesday 2nd November.
We arrived bright and early, not quite knowing what to expect and were greeted by smiling students, keen to help and direct us.  We set up our stall, with Christmas Cards, beautiful hand knitted baby cardigans and Catholic Care pens and stress balls.
There were so many people who wanted to celebrate the anniversary, current students, former students and people from the local community.  We had some wonderful conversations, ranging from the services we provide to memories of the University and Catholic Care.  We even had a short visit to our stall from Bishop Marcus who led mass in the beautiful chapel.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day and did lots of networking and made contacts who we hope to be able to work with in the future.
The day finished with us lighting candles for the work of Catholic Care and the people we serve.  It was wonderful to take a moment in the chapel to pray for all those we have helped and those we will meet in the future.
Thank you so much to Leeds Trinity University for inviting us to share in your special day.
