Bishop Steve Lowe, President of the New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference advised, on 28 October, that the Apostolic Nuncio, Archbishop Rugambwa had been taken seriously ill the previous day. Bishop Steve wrote: ‘Yesterday Archbishop Novatus Rugambwa, our Apostolic Nuncio, had a severe stroke. He is in a serious condition at Wellington Hospital. Please keep him in your prayers.’
Archbishop Novatus was to have invested Archbishop Paul Martin sm with the Pallium on Sunday 5 November at St Mary of the Angels 5pm Mass. Instead Bishop Steve Lowe will now make this presentation on Sunday 5 November at St Mary of the Angels 5pm Mass.
Please pray for Archbishop Novatus at this time.
