Consultation Options
Please take the time to read through the Consultation Options paper before  you complete the Consultation Survey. This paper sets out the preliminary options the Steering Committee have identified from the input and feedback Parishioners have provided over the past few months. We will be providing an opportunity for a Parish-wide face-to-face engagement on these options, however we also invite feedback through our on-line survey.

Prayer to guide our discernment of the Cardinal’s directive

Almighty Father,
We ask that you guide and help us consider the future
of our churches and presbyteries within the Parish of Te Awakairangi.
Help us be mindful of what change might mean to our communities
and the impact it may have on individuals. Guide us to be a sound
judge of all situations that change may have within and across our Parish.
Open our hearts to ensure our thoughts, words and actions
are focused on building a stronger parish community that supports
and provides for the Pastoral Care of all peoples in our Parish.
We thank you for your guidance and for being with us
as we discern the property needs of our Parish.
We offer this prayer in the name of your Son, Jesus Christ.
