The Rites of Election and Continuing Call to Conversion for our RCIA catechumen and candidates will be held at Mass today (14 Feb) in Morrinsville. They are now in the final stage of their formation before receiving the Sacraments of Initiation on Easter Vigil. On 28th February, they will be presented to Bishop Steve at the 10:30am Mass in the Cathedral in Hamilton. Let us pray for them as they continue their journey of faith with us until they receive the Easter sacraments.

Stations of the Cross.
Paschale Solemnitatis (On Preparing and Celebrating the Paschal Feasts, 20)  states that ―Devotional exercises which harmonize with the Lenten season are to be encouraged, for example the "Stations of the Cross". In view of this, Stations of the Cross will be held in each of the three churches (Morrinsville, Paeroa and Te Aroha) every Friday during Lent at 5:30pm. All welcome
