Napier Family Centre - Catholic Parish of Napier Representative

A few weeks ago I wrote in the newsletter that we were looking for a parishioner to replace Mike Healy on the Board of the Napier Family Centre. The Centre was set up by the Napier Inner City Churches (NICC) over 40 years ago and founded on Christian principles. I am delighted that Doug Neilson from the Parish has willingly accepted an appointment to the Board. I am very grateful to Doug for accepting this role and know he will do a wonderful job representing the Parish with other Board members from the Napier Inner City Churches.

We sincerely acknowledge Mike Healy for his long years of service at the Napier Family Centre. We owe Mike a great deal of thanks for his dedication and commitment over a long number of years representing the Parish on the Board.

Parish Administration and Mission Centre

Last Thursday a meeting was held of the Project Control Group (PCG) for the new building. This group is made up of our Quantity Surveyor, Tony Sutherland from RLB, Brian McGuinness from L T McGuinness Ltd in Wellington, John Peacock a retired auditor (who for several months has been helping with Finance in our Parish Office), Jonathan Bissell and myself together with the architect and the management team from the construction company (Atkin). Liam Greer, the manager of the Diocese was unable to attend. The group are pleased with progress on the building especially in view of the delays caused by COVID and the difficulty in obtaining GIB plasterboard. It is expected that the building will be completed and the Parish will take possession in early September.


I am very grateful to the parishioners who have made a donation to the fundraising for the Administration and Mission Centre. Fundraising is now critical as we near the final phase of construction and the large payments due as many items are completed. Over the next couple of weeks there will be a fundraising presentation at all Masses and every parishioner will receive a brochure and a gifting card. Please consider what you are able to do to ensure this new building is debt free on completion.

If you wish to donate immediately the bank details are :
