From the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne, The Leading a Missionary Parish series offers interactive sessions with global leaders in missionary parish renewal. Missionary parishes transform lives and grow disciples for whom worship and sacraments come to life and whose ministry and service flourishes. Two of the four scheduled online sessions are currently available below. 

Session 1: “Awakening your heart for mission” with Fr Stephen Langridge (UK) 
Fr Stephen is Parish Priest of St Elizabeth of Portugal parish in Richmond, London, and formerly Vocations Director for the Southwark Diocese.

Te Rau Aroha

Tēnei mātou, this is us 

No te Rau Aroha, from Te Rau Aroha 

Te Rohe Pīhopa o Te Papaioea the Diocese of Palmerston North 

E karanga atu nei the call which goes out 

E tū atu nei that stands 

Tuku reo aroha for the love (also a reference to our place Te Rau Aroha) 

Huia, tuia, tui, tuia that gathers us and binds us  

Tuia, hui e taiki ee binding us  

Hui e, Taiki e. Together. Amen.
