A Thank you message from Deacon Stuart

I have really enjoyed the past 18 months working with you all and especially also  working pastorally in the parishes. As most of you know I have been  involved in the Morrinsville parish in many roles over the past 30 years, it is where I was married to Shona and where our children were raised. It has been a privilege to act as your deacon over the past few months and I look forward to being able to celebrate my first mass with you all later this year. 

You are a people who have achieved so much over the past few years for the glory of God, and faced many changes and frustrations over several years, should I ever be able to assist you please do not hesitate to call upon me. As I looked out to the Morrinsville community last week I was extremely humbled when I looked at the Stations of the Cross which the family donated in memory of Shona. I sensed her presence there, but then she is part of my ministry to all the parishes of the Holy Family, which truly cements you all in my heart and service to our Lord Jesus Christ.

May the blessings of Easter be with you all.
