St Brigid’s renovations transform church

St Brigid’s Church Pahiatua has recently been renovated, upgraded, and earthquake strengthened to the new building code.

Stage one involved the replacement of the flat roof with a pitched roof and considerable interior refurbishment. Stage two will involve the extension of the gathering area, kitchen, parish office and toilets.

Parishioners funded stage one while funding for stage two will come from the sale of the Brigidine  Convent, and sections on the old convent site – now renamed ‘Brigidine Place’.

Three sections have already been sold with a two-bedroom house partially completed on the first section.
