Tūranga Māori

Tūranga Māori is one of the ways in which communities can make contact with Catholic Māori in the Archdiocese of Wellington. These communities include parishes, schools, liturgy groups, pastoral and other groups.

Deacon Danny Karatea-Goddard is Tūranga Māori and was welcomed to this role on 27 February 2017. Tūranga Māori works with Monsignor Gerard Burns (Vicar for Māori) and Rangimoeroa Waikari-Panapa, Kaiāwhina Māori, in the Māori Pastoral Care team.

Pā Gerard and Danny are ex-officio members of Te Kahu o Te Rangi, the Catholic Māori Pastoral Council for the Wellington Archdiocese. Rangimoeroa is Secretary. Members of Te Kahu o Te Rangi meet regularly throughout the year to report on activities in their various rohe (areas).

The Māori Pastoral Care offices are in the Archdiocesan Catholic Centre, 22 Hill St, Thorndon, Wellington.

Nau mai, haere mai ki te tari nei.
