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 and their communities within the Archdiocese. New members are always welcome.
One of the main activities for members is to report back to TKOTR on initiatives in their particular parish and rohe (area). For example:
- sacramental programmes in their parish – Baptisms and Holy Communion
- pastoral activities – home & hospital visits
- assisting with liturgies in parishes /communities – hīmene, karakia, karanga.
TKOTR meets four times each year in February, May, August and November.
The first hui for 2019 is Sunday, 3 February 2019 at Pukekaraka Marae, Convent Road, Ōtaki from 1pm-4pm.
He pānui, he pōwhiri tēnei kia hui tahi tāou ki te kāinga Katorika o Pukekaraka, ki a Hinenui-o-te-ao-katoa. Nau mai, whakatau mai rā.
