Ending and Beginning

January 31st, 2016 by Admin

Sunday 31 January was a day of remembrance as Fr David celebrated the Final Mass of the Parish of St Francis de Sales.  In front of the altar were the Registers of Baptism and Funerals for the Parish and a copy of the Parish History Book as the end of an era was marked.


While we witnessed the final Mass for The Parish of St Francis de Sales, our commitment to the ongoing presence of St Francis de Sales Church in our new Catholic Parish of Wellington South was reiterated.  Fr David gave an up date on the process of earthquake strengthening of the building.

At Noon the First Parish Picnic for the new Catholic Parish of Wellington South was held in the Grounds of the Home of Compassion.


Parishioners from St Anne’s, St Bernard’s, St Francis de Sales and St Joseph’s joined together to celebrate and have fun together.  Many thanks to all those who organised the day and ensured everyone had a great time.
Thanks also to the Sister of Compassion who welcomed us all to their home.
