In this challenging time for the Diocese we remember that God journeys with us. Let us continue to gather, to reflect, to pray, and to seek to be filled with the Holy Spirit as the early Church was at Pentecost.
The prayer available to download below was composed in 1993 alongside a renewed pastoral plan for the diocese. It was prayed in all parishes on Pentecost Sunday of that year.
If you, or someone you know, has a concern about abuse or harm in a Church setting:
Make a report to the National Office for Professional Standards (NOPS) or the Police.
NOPS is a specialist Church team to support those making complaints about abuse and harm in the Church and to investigate instances of abuse or safeguarding concerns. Phone: 0800 114 622; Website: www.safeguarding.catholic.org.nz
