Welcome to Our Lady of Kāpiti Parish's website.

Haere mai e te Whanau, Tēnā koutou katoa, a kia noho te Ariki ki a koutou.


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.

Our Mass Centre is:

  1. St Patrick's Hall, Presentation Way, Paraparaumu.

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.


“Help thy Neighbour”

We have had a number of people requiring help with essential groceries or offering to help those, who are unable to!  We understand that some families have been cut off from their loved ones, and feel scared and lonely at this time. For those that can, now is the time to act…

How well do you know those in your neighbourhood?  How about leaving a note in their mailbox or if you know their number, give them a telephone call? The Parish office is collating names and numbers of people willing to help, but please remember that those people offering to help, must do so within a safe distance…

If you need help or are able to provide help, please leave a message at the parish office 04 902 5815 (these are being checked regularly) or email kapitiparishoffice@gmail.com.


The Parish Office
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.
