Fr Mario's Wake and Funeral Updates

To all ACFC family, all Filipino church communities, and friends of Fr Mario.

We all have been awakened earlier yesterday, 14 March 2023 upon hearing the sad news re the passing on of Fr Mario Dorado, OFMCap.

His untiring and unselfish support for the St Benedict's church, and all churches he served has truly touched us in so many ways. This unfortunate news has left a big void in the hearts of many, especially in the Auckland Catholic Filipino Chaplaincy (ACFC) Community.

At these difficult times, please let us comfort each other with the good memories Fr Mario has left us with.

May we all continue to remember him in our prayers. He is truly a great loss for our Filipino community.

If you want to enjoin the ACFC community in honouring him for the last time, mass offering schedules are as follows:
