With due regard to the health and safety of the Trinity and broader community, the College has decided to cancel this year's Trinity Walk for Justice: 8 for a Mate 2020. COVID-19 concerns and related circumstances make it impossible for the College to hold the event.
Trinity Walk for Justice: 8 for a Mate will return in 2021! This is an important day in our College calendar where students from years 7 to 12 descend on the beaches of the Gold Coast to walk 8km for a mate in the name of social justice. Their 'Mate' being those individuals who need support due to poverty, disability, displacement from their homeland, or similar situations which see the dignity of the individual diminished.
Show your support by donating to the 'Trinity Walk for Justice: 8 for Mate' 8km beach walk today. Each year level will be focused on fundraising for one particular charity or associated appeal, supporting our mates both locally and internationally.
It is our hope that the 'Trinity Walk for Justice: 8 for a Mate 2020' will raise $20,000.00 to be distributed among the following charities: Caritas Australia, Australian Marist Solidarity, Emmanual City Mission, St Vincent De Paul, The MacKillop Fund and Catholic Mission.

The Nazareth home for God’s children is one of the many critical initiatives established by the Catholic Church in Ghana, Africa, supported by Catholic Mission, to save the lives of the countries most vulnerable young people. There are many stories, like the following, which provides an example as to the work undertaken by Catholic Mission. In accordance with local customs in parts of northern Ghana, some people in Sarah's community believed the little girl to be "spirit child". Under these customs, any child born with a disability or whose mother dies during their birth may be considered a bad woman, and their lives placed at risk. Many in Sarah's community, including her own family, became furious at her inability or unwillingness to speak and defend herself against the allegations, casting her out and threatening to kill her. Thankfully, Sister Stan from The Nazareth Home for God’s children and the local Church was made aware of the imminent danger Sarah was in and was able to intervene to save Sarah from the most terrible fate and give her a new chance at life. The Nazareth Home for God’s children is a haven where children like Sarah are given shelter, nutritious meals, health-care and education as well as unconditional love. Your donation to Catholic Mission will help missionaries like Sister Stan rescue and care for children like Sarah in Ghana and around the world!
