Sunday 19th July- 16th Sunday in Ordinary Time

We have seen in recent weeks an increased publicity around the introduction of euthanasia into New Zealand law by a pro-euthanasia group called Voluntary Euthanasia Society (VES).  The NZ Catholic Bishops Conference, through the Nathaniel Centre, has been involved in the establishment of Euthanasia Free New Zealand, and have authorised a national diocesan group to coordinate opposition to the introduction of euthanasia into New Zealand law. 

In view of this, an information and training workshop for parishioners who are articulate and passionate in their opposition to euthanasia will be held at St Mary’s Parish Centre in Rotorua on Saturday 8th of August. The workshop will be conducted by Dr. John Kleinsman from the Nathaniel Centre. It is hoped that all parishes throughout the Diocese will be represented. 

Please let me know if you are interested or ring the parish office.
Fr. JeLo
