Haere mai e te whanau, Tëná koutou katoa, a kia noho te Ariki ki a koutou.
Welcome, family, greetings to you all. May the Lord be with you.
Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, his love is everlasting..
David and Velma Knight who are just one of the couples that have worked just so hard to get our new church and parish complex built and open. They decided that rather than take their usual Easter Holiday that they would stay at home and take in all of the Easter festivities that were happening for the first time in our new Our Lady of Kapiti Church.
How clever were they?
Extremely so, is the only answer, because each of the services was unique in its own right, the two common denominators were the presence of God and Fr. Michael McCabe, whose inspired preaching was something to behold and it has been viewed online, time and time again, even by people who attended the services live. We were taken through the whole range of emotions, of our beliefs, from sadness to joys but always we were held in awe of the special abilities that make up this special priest. Similarly, Mary Kay’s beautiful reflection at our Easter Vigil was superb.
As we were exiting the Church the superlatives of some people, often who were not regulars were amazing, so many had been taken to some 'other place' by the occasion.
Thank you Father and Mary and thank you to the countless people whose superb efforts made these Easter celebrations so very very special.
