Haere mai e te whanau, Tena koutou katoa, a kia noho te Ariki ki a koutou.

Welcome, family, greetings to you all. May the Lord be with you.

WE, the parishioners of Our Lady of Kāpiti Parish, centred in the Gospel of Christ, contribute to the Mission of the Archdiocese of Wellington, through our commitment to the values of: Worship, Hospitality, Community, Justice and Service.

Our Parish Area covers the geographic area

from Paekakariki in the south to Te Horo in the North, comprising the Paekakariki, Raumati, Paraparaumu, Waikanae and Te Horo communities. The area is guarded by Our Lady’s statue on the hill above Paraparaumu. Our aim is to provide information for visitors, new comers to our area and parishioners. The website has general information about our Parish, its various groups & ministries, and also details of what is happening in the Parish.
