A Mass of the Dedication of St Mary of the Angels in Wellington as the National Shrine to Mary, Mother of God, Assumed into Heaven, will be held at St Mary of the Angels on Sunday 14 August 2022 at 2pm. 

Everyone is welcome to attend, from anywhere in Aotearoa New Zealand. The Mass will be live-streamed (see Te Ara a Maria – Mary’s Way website: tearaamaria.nz).

The Mass will be the culmination of the year-long nationwide hīkoi of the artwork Ko Hāta Maria, te Matua Wahine o te Atua – Holy Mary, Mother of God, by the artist Damien Walker. The hīkoi began with a Mass at St Mary of the Angels on the Feast of the Assumption last year. 

The artwork will go on permanent display in St Mary of the Angels after the 14 August Mass.
