Catherine McClintock and Trevor Gray at her farewell morning teaAfter thirteen-and-a-half years with De Paul House, Catherine McClintock is retiring. Catherine started with the emergency housing and family support organisation as a board member and after 6 years switched roles and became the organisation’s Manager.

Catherine has been an integral part of De Paul House’s success over the years, implementing many fantastic programmes and even trying her hand in Building Management, with the recent building project on the premises last year.

It was clear from the speeches, singing and dancing at her farewell celebration yesterday that Catherine has done an exceptionally outstanding job and will be greatly missed.

The Tindall Foundation has had a long relationship with Catherine with our own Trevor Gray having met her years ago at the Diploma of Not-for-profit Management at Unitec, which she completed during her 17-year role at North Shore Community and Social Services. Co-Founder Margaret Tindall also knows Catherine well thanks to her long-standing commitment to volunteering at De Paul House.

Catherine, thank you for all you have done for the community and St Mary’s Northcote Parish. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with you and wish you the most fantastic adventure ahead.
