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.

Please continue to use Sanitiser and Masks must be worn!

We are now in the Orange Traffic Setting with the Ministry of Health. There is no need to register for mass anymore, as there are now unlimited numbers inside and outside for gatherings.  However, the wearing of Masks is still required, to ALL whom visit the Parish Centre. Masks must remain on at ALL times!
It’s important that if you do have symptoms of Covid, you should not attend services and should do a RAT test. If that test is negative, but they still have symptoms, you should continue to self isolate while symptomatic, and do another test in 48 hours, as we are finding that due to the lower sensitivity of the test, people who have Covid can test negative on a RAT initially.
