After many months of praying, hoping, planning, and getting together in smaller ways, the Inaugural Mass will be an occasion not to be missed, as our four Church communities come together, bringing all our gifts, history, traditions and faith, and looking to a shared future full of hope. This Mass will reflect all four Church communities and will require the generosity of many people and their gifts.
If you have any questions, please approach your Parish representatives: Maureen Laws (St Anne’s), Kathy Moriarty & Anna Kozniak (St Joseph’s), Mary Powell (St Bernard’s) and Maria Elenio & Stephanie Bosch (St Francis de Sales). Alternatively please contact Malia (Maria.Vito-Tupai@mbie.govt.nz) or Lucienne (firstname.lastname@example.org).
