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.

Dear Parishioners,

We give thanks to God this week as construction begins for our new Parish Church and sincerely thank all our benefactors, living and deceased, for their outstanding generosity and belief in our dream of a new Church to go alongside our new School and Parish hall. We also pray protection and safety for all those who work for us on this site and for their families, as well as continued protection and safety for the School children and staff and their families.

The gospel of the Transfiguration is essentially a gospel about encouragement and our ongoing need to listen to Jesus, the beloved of God. We are all the beloved of God – prayerful listening to God helps to keep that fundamental principle uppermost in our minds and hearts and actions.

With every blessing in Christ, Michael McCabe, Parish Priest
