Parish Administration and Mission Centre

Work continues on the Parish Administration and Mission Centre. The beautiful weather over the past week has seen the roof fully completed and early next week the scaffolding will come down and the beauty of the design will be fully revealed.

We are very grateful to those generous parishioners who have already made a donation to this wonderful Parish asset. We will be launching a major fundraising campaign shortly but if you wish to make a donation now the details are:

Catholic Parish of Napier Fundraising: 02-0630-0288045-015

All donations are tax deductible and each donation will be receipted either through your planned giving donations or a separate tax receipt.

Thank You

A sincere thank you to those parishioners who sent messages of prayers to us while the Marist community were in isolation last week. It was very much appreciated. We are grateful that we only experienced mild symptoms of the virus. We are all fit and well and looking forward to seeing you this Sunday.

I am very grateful to Father Mike Wooller and Father David Kennerley who celebrated Parish Masses last weekend. They are always willing to help when needed. Thank you also to those who helped with ‘Liturgy of the Word and Holy Communion’ during the week for our parishioners. I am very grateful.

Synod 2023

As you are aware Pope Francis has called for a Synod in 2023 and has asked Catholics throughout the world to journey together in reflecting upon the Church in the present and constructing a vision for the future.

Last Saturday representatives from parishes throughout the Diocese of Palmerston North attended ‘Te Reo o Hewa’ - a Synod Hui. Our Parish was represented and from all reports it was a very successful gathering.

Please keep ‘Synod 2023’ in your prayers.


We warmly congratulate Daphne and Patrick Wells who celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary last Thursday. We thank God for their deep faith and commitment to married life and we wish them every blessing on this very special occasion of their diamond wedding anniversary.
