Since lent is coming up in just over a week's time, the Caritas Lenten Appeal envelopes will be made available next weekend. The theme for this year’s Caritas Lenten Appeal is “Your face, Lord, do I seek” ( from psalm 27:8). Lenten refection booklets will also be available for your personal reflection throughout the season of Lent, or you may want to organise reflection groups that may gather each week.

There will be No Masses this week (21-24 February) and the week after (28 Feb, 2-3 March), so I can spend time with my parents (Yes, they have arrived!) and tour them around. But there will be Liturgy of the Word with Communion. 

For Ash Wednesday, 1 March, the Mass times will be 10am in Morrinsville and 5.30pm in Te Aroha.

I’d like to invite the youth in our Parish, year 11-13 and young adults aged 18-35 to attend this wonderful event. SetFree offers youth and young adults with an opportunity to experience the burning desire that Christ has to see them fully alive through engaging speakers, quality music and a strong, community-based atmosphere.

Our Sacramental Program for 2017 will start soon. Enrollment forms are available in the parish office, church foyer and at our school offices. The child has to be at least 8 years old already. Please attach a copy of the Baptismal certificate of the child.
