Liturgical Resources

Kia ora. Tēnā koutou, tēnā tātou. The following resources will be useful in a liturgical context. Priests learning to say the Mass in te reo Māori may listen to and download the MP3 files below. Scroll down to find other documents relating to the Mass and the liturgical readings for the coming week.

MP3 recordings of the Mass in Te Reo

This is a resource for priests who are learning to say the Mass in te reo Māori, the Māori language. Therefore the recordings comprise the priest parts only.

The MP3 recordings follow the format in the Roman Missal 2010 approved for use in the Diocese of New Zealand by the New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference.

The parts of the Mass will be introduced by the name of the part of the Mass and the page number that it corresponds to in the Roman Missal.

There are 11 recordings  so you are able to listen to the part of the Mass  you are focusing on.
