The Chaplaincy Team
The Auckland Catholic Tertiary Chaplaincy team is based at 110 Symonds St, Grafton right in the heart of the University of Auckland and AUT City Campuses. The team consists of 4 members: Fr Chris Denham (Priest Chaplain), and Shana Llorando (Lay Chaplain).
Fr Chris Denham: I’m a true Roman Catholic, born in Rome, but a kiwi through and through (don’t let the accent fool you). An old boy of St Patrick’s College in Wellington, after years of moving around, both New Zealand and the world, I spent six years with the Dominican friars in Australia before returning to New Zealand and being ordained for the Diocese of Auckland. I’ve worked in the parishes of Papakura, Devonport, and Warkworth. In addition to being the Tertiary Chaplain I am also the parish priest of Parnell. My hobbies are music, reading and arguing and I’m always happy to share them with anyone.
