Special Character Focus

Commitment Mass: This Sunday 28th is Commitment Mass for our St Joseph and Parishioners children who will receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time. The Mass will be at the Basilica at 9:30am. We will reserve the seats up the front of the Church for the families. The children will make their commitment pledge during Mass. There will be a morning tea after Mass and Adrienne and I will introduce the children to their prayer partners.

Fiordland National Park - This week 117 years ago the first steps were taken to set aside nearly 1 million hectares of far western Southland and Otago as a national reserve and became New Zealand’s largest national park in 1952.

Let us take the time in Lent to thank God for our beautiful country and the foresight and courage of those who had the vision to preserve this land for all. Lets also pray for those who corrupt our land. Help them to see the error of their ways. Help us all to cherish this gift of God.

Pope Francis
We are to be stewards of creation, to thank God for the wonderful handiwork which he has entrusted to our care, and to implore his help for the protection of creation as well as his pardon for the sins committed against the world in which we live.

Thank you/Malo 'Aupito
God Bless
