Ordination to the Priesthood
Deacon Danny Fraser-Jones will be ordained to the priesthood  on the 22nd of August at the Cathedral in Hamilton. Let us include Danny in our prayers as he continues to prepare himself for the priestly ministry.   

Feast of The Assumption Mass- Friday August 14 
St. Joseph's School in Morrinsville will have their Mass for the Feast of the Assumption on the 14th of August, Friday at St. Joseph's Church in Morrinsville at 10:00am. In view of this, there will be no Holy Hour/ Benediction and Reconciliation just for that Friday. Again, Mass on the 14th August, Friday, will be at 10:00am, NOT 11:00am.

Solemnity of the Assumption 2015 
For this year, the celebration of the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Patron Saint of Aotearoa New Zealand, is transferred from Saturday 15 August to Sunday 16th August. National Liturgy Office

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults/RCIA
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) will soon commence in our Parishes. The RCIA is a process intended for adults (also for teenagers age 16 years and above) who: (a) are unbaptised and wish to join the Catholic Church, or simply wish to inquire and know more about the Catholic Faith; (b) have already been baptised in the Catholic Church, but have not received Confirmation and First Communion; (c) have been baptised in other Christian Churches and wish to be received into full communion with the Catholic Church. We are looking at starting the RCIA sometime in October. If you know of people who are interested in joining the Church, please advise them to ring our secretaries or myself. Let us all be agents of Evangelisation.
