Our Executive Director Lyn Ainsworth says goodbye

July 7, 2020

Having come to CatholicCare Diocese of Broken Bay as interim Executive Director, I did not expect to be here two years later. It has been such a privilege to serve the communities of our Diocese and support the staff, volunteers and clients and their families.

As I hand the baton to the incoming, permanent Executive Director, Tim Curran, I pay tribute to the extraordinary contribution that CatholicCare makes to transforming the social fabric of our communities, bringing hope to those who are at risk of losing hope, and nurturing the children and young people who are our future.

COVID-19 has turned our world upside down. Yet throughout the crisis period and as we emerge into a new normal, CatholicCare has been there. Our staff and volunteers are among the hundreds of thousands of essential workers across the country who have ensured that the most vulnerable are cared for and connected, and that the families of other essential workers can be supported.

As I depart from I feel full of hope for the future of the agency and the communities we serve. I am so grateful for the love, friendship and support I have received, and I look forward to continuing to hear of the extraordinary  work of CatholicCare.
