Parish Focus Meeting

After the 9.30am Mass on Sunday 28 January a Parish Focus Meeting will be held at Te Rau Oriwa Marae. All parishioners are invited. We will address the questions given us by Bishop Charles Drennan:

  1. How can we grow and strengthen and make more dynamic our parish this year through the sacraments and liturgy?
  2. How can we strengthen our parish through greater participation of  Māori and other ethnic groups?
  3. How can we grow participation in our parish this year with more children, young families and teenagers?
  4. How can we enliven our parish this year through social justice and service initiatives?

plus any other topics raised by parishioners. The idea is to participate in a Diocese-wide consultation as well as to set priorities and generate fresh ideas for the Parish committees in  2018.

The meeting will go from 11am-12.30pm and will be followed by a shared lunch in the hall. Please bring a plate to share.
