Haere mai e te Whanau, Tēnā koutou katoa, a kia noho te Ariki ki a koutou.
October 2019 is an Extraordinary Month of Mission. Pope Francis has called for a celebration of missionary work and its importance to our faith. In this video we meet two New Zealanders doing incredible work teaching at a school in Ranong, Thailand; Father Frank Bird SM and Katie Fisher.

From 19 August 2019 the Parish Office will be located at 45B Te Roto Drive, Paraparaumu. This is a temporary move prior to our relocation to the new parish offices, 1 Presentation Way, due for completion and opening Easter 2020. The Office phone number, email address and postal address, P O Box 1, Paraparaumu 5254, remain unchanged.
To assist Ministers of Holy Communion, the Blessed Sacrament will be reserved in the homes of Father Michael McCabe at Waikanae Beach, Father Jim Kershaw and Merle Whiteman at Brookvale Village, Sisters Barbara Henley and Joan Gore at Bishop Snedden Village. We encourage Ministers of Holy Communion to take Holy Communion from one of the Parish Sunday or Weekday Masses. Wherever possible exposition of the Blessed Sacrament will continue each Friday before Mass. The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be celebrated during that time.
There will be parishioners requiring assistance to get to and from the Sunday Masses. If you are able to
help with this please contact the Parish Office 902 5815 or firstname.lastname@example.org
