The Diocese of Palmerston North includes communities in a large region stretching from the northern reaches of Hawke's Bay in the east, under the shadow of Mt Ruapehu to Waitara on the west, encompassing Hawke's Bay, Whanganui, and Taranaki regions following the coast down to Foxton across to Manawatu and Tararua and some of Wairarapa; the diocese is as diverse in geography as its people.
