28th November 2021



1st Sunday of Advent



The annual shifts for members of the Society of Mary have been promulgated and we are pleased to announce that Father Chris Martin sm will join our Parish ministry team in 2022. Father Chris will complete his six year term of Parish Priest of Whangarei in February next year and after a well deserved break will take up his new role here in Napier.

Father Chris will bring many gifts to the Catholic Parish of Napier. He was involved for many years in Maori Pastoral Care and is fluent in Te Reo. We look forward to welcoming him to the Parish.


We congratulate twenty young parishioners who will receive their first Holy Communion today. We congratulate:

Jaxon Bound                     Cormac Brassington               Leanne D’Cruz

Adelaide Dowling             Helena Hutchinson                Hugo Jeffares

Talon Lawton                   Kees Lepelaars                        Mia Madarasz-Smith

Tamas Madarasz-Smith   Addison Marple                      Molly McEwan

Anna Moioli                      Liam O’Neill                          Luca Quinn

Hunter Reilly                    Pietra Ribeiro-Kelly                Mila Squire

Kepa Symes                      Theo Trinidad

We assure these children and their families of our prayerful support on this First Communion Day. The celebration of First Communion will continue over the next two Sundays with a total of 59 children receiving the sacrament.
