The two Kapiti parishes celebrate their coming together as one under the new name, Our Lady of Kapiti, on Sunday 13 October, at 10am.
Our Lady of Fatima in Waikanae and St Patrick’s Paraparaumu have been discussing merging for the past three years under the guidance of a committee comprising members of both parish communities.
The new parish has hired Southwards for the celebration which will take the form of a Mass and a multicultural festival and is open to all. Free buses will run from both churches and railway stations: 9am and 9.30am (before), 11.45am and 12.15pm (return). For more details contact Bob Houston or phone (04) 293 3390.
