Upper Hutt Filipino Community Fiesta.

December 2015


Our Lady of the Rosary Filipino community of Upper Hutt celebrated their annual fiesta on Sunday, 11 October 2015, at St Joseph’s Church.

The fiesta was preceded by a nine-day Novena to Our Lady of the Rosary, the community Patroness. Fr Danny Cipriano, Filipino Community Chaplain, and Fr Ron Bennett, Parish Priest, concelebrated the fiesta Mass and children offered flowers to Our Lady of the Rosary.

Fellowship, parlour games, outside entertainment for all and a basketball game between Hutt Valley and Karori youth, added to make the fiesta a very happy and sunny celebration, and truly a blessing to many.

Everyone from the different barangays is looking forward to our next annual event.
