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.
O Lord, who may abide in your tent?
When we place the qualities of Martha and Mary together, namely their active hospitality and contemplation and prayer, we gain a new picture of the mission given to all by Jesus. To become a people of deep abiding prayer and also to become a people actively putting justice and charity into practice in daily living.
This week the Social Justice Group of Our Lady of Kāpiti , together with the Hutt Valley Benefit Education Service, are highlighting the role of advocacy, that is, getting the best possible support for the person in need. To be an advocate for others is to be a brother or sister for Christ and to build a culture of care in the community.
As part of this week Cardinal John Dew will be the celebrant for our Parish Mass on Wednesday at 9.30am...
With every blessing in Christ,
Michael McCabe, Parish Priest.
