Father Mike Tria is relocating in February to be the parish priest of Orewa. A leader of the Filipino Catholic com- munity, Virginia Rus- sell, says Father Mike s appointment as parish priest is a glo- rious achievement for him and a great lift for us Filipinos . On recognition of this achievement and in appreciation of Father Mike s pastoral care for us Filipino Catholics, we have arranged for Father Mike to celebrate the usual Filipino mass at St Joseph s Catholic Church on Sunday at 4pm, she says. A special send-off at Flanagan Lounge will follow after the mass. We enjoin Filipino parishioners of St Joseph s, St Lukes, St Vincent de Paul and other nearby North Shore parishes to come and join us on this fellowship. Participants are encouraged to bing a plate and a personal memento for him. A big day for helper Volunteer: St John volunteer Michael Duxfield will be helping Big Day Out festivalgoers who are in need of medical assistance. Photo: BEN WATSON By SARAH CODDINGTON Michael Duxfield is opting to help out Big Day Out festivalgoers rather than join his friends in the mosh pit. The 19-year-old says it may be tempting to scoot off to see the electropop band Kids of 88, but he hasajobtodo. This will be the third time Michael has volun- teered at tomorrow s fes- tival at Mt Smart Stadium. The Hillcrest resident keeps coming back to help out because it is a big event and there are lots of different people who need different kind of healthcare assistance. Michael is a nursing student at AUT Akor- anga and says his inter- est in healthcare comes from his father Graham who is a paramedic. I just like to help people and you can travel anywhere as a nurse, he says. One of the most com- mon injuries is girls get- ting blisters from new shoes they ve bought for the big day, Michael says. Another common inci- dent is people getting dehydrated. St John volunteers treated 1415 people at the concert and trans- ported 15 of them to hos- pital last year. Those taken to hos- pital suffered from chest pains, overdoses, neck injuries and fractures. St John is advising people to take sunscreen to the event and keep fluids up by drinking lots of water throughout the day to avoid dehy- dration. The charity organis- ation employs volunteers and paid workers and is a provider of emergency and community care. New year event The Auckland Chinese Community Centre holds its Chinese New Year Festival and Market Day on Saturday from 9.30am to 4pm to wel- come in the year of the rabbit. The venue is ASB Showgrounds, halls 3 and 4, 217 Greenlane West. Entry is free. High tea on The Blue Butterfly Trust for pancreatic cancer is holding a fundraising high tea on January 27 from 4pm to 7pm at But- terfly Creek, Tom Pearce Drive, Auckland Inter- national Airport.
