Parish Update- 6th July 2014

At Mass on Sunday, Peter Farrelly addressed the congregation and announced the changes that have been made by the unexpected new that Father Joseph Akkara CMI has been recalled back to India by his Superior. The implications for us as a Parish involve changing Mass times, which will be effective from the 2nd of August. The changes will mean a step towards a combined Parish sooner, rather than later. He explained the need to change our Mass times in order for Father Mark to serve three communities as opposed to simply one. 

Currently, the proposed Mass times are as follows:

Te Aroha- Saturday Vigil Winter time at 5.00pm and Summer time at 7.00pm
Morrinsville- Sunday Morning at 10.00am
Paeroa- Sunday Evening- 5.00pm

The weekday Masses in Parishes will have to be decided nearer to the time so that they meet the needs of all the Parishes and Schools.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation during this time of change for us all
