Te Kahu o Te Rangi (TKOTR) is the Māori Pastoral Council in the Archdiocese of Wellington. Membership of TKOTR is open to all Catholic Māori communities within the Archdiocese and new members are always welcome. One of the main activities for members is to report back to TKOTR on initiatives in their particular rohe (area). For example, sacramental programmes in their parish – baptisms and Holy Communion; pastoral activities – home & hospital visits; and assisting with liturgies in other parishes – hīmene, karakia, karanga.
TKOTR meets four times annually. The remaining dates for this year are:
- Sunday, 7 May 2017
- Sunday, 6 August 2017
- Sunday, 5 November 2017.
All these hui will be held from 11.30pm-2.30pm at Tū-Hono, Kenepuru Drive, Porirua, after 10am Miha at Te Ngākau Tapu.
Nau mai, haere mai.
