The people behind the website

For the last few years, Dominican website has been administered by Teresa McNamara from Auckland.  Starting September there will be a team of two:  Teresa continues and Joe Joseph from Auckland joins her in maintaining the Dominican Aotearoa New Zealand website.   Find out more about Teresa and Joe below:

Teresa was born in Auckland and grew up as a parishioner at St Benedict’s Parish in Auckland.  It was here that she “became” Dominican.  After many years working as a manager in a corporate law firm, these days Teresa is the Team Leader of Youth and Young Adult Ministry for the Auckland Diocese.

Joe was born in India and studied at Don Bosco School.  Later moved to the United Kingdom for his MS. in Computing with IT Management and MBA.  Being a software engineer and his experience in the field of Information Technology both in United Kindom and New Zealand motivated him to take up this initiative.   He became a Dominican as a parishioner of St Dominic’s Parish in Auckland.  He is married to Diya Joseph.  They both enjoy being a part of Dominican Family.
