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.
This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad.
A blessed Easter to you all and sincere thanks to those who have contributed to all of the beautiful liturgies of Holy Week, the establishment of the Memorial gardens and outdoor Stations of the Cross – all ways in which we honour our collective past and future in Christ.
Congratulations and welcome to our catechumens who are received into the Church at our Easter Vigil - Matthew Penwill; Peter Dallas and Marilyn Wilkinson; Abigail and Kenny Graham and special thanks to their families, sponsors, and the RCIA team of Catherine, Gerard, and Lafaele. The story of all catechumens enriches the story of the Body of Christ and reminds us all of those who have nurtured our own faith journey.
May the peace of the risen Christ bless us and our loved ones during this Easter season.
With every blessing in Christ,
Michael McCabe, Parish Priest
