Haere mai e te whanau, Tena koutou katoa, a kia noho te Ariki ki a koutou.
Welcome, family, greetings to you all. May the Lord be with you.
Sincere congratulations to Sister Breda Ryan and the Presentation Sisters and their Associates on the occasion of her Golden Jubilee of profession. As a Parish and School community we have been so very blessed by the ministry of Sister Breda, by her wisdom and compassion and courage. By profession Sister Breda is a nurse and has brought healing to the sick and dying here in Käpiti as well as to the women and children of Papua New Guinea where she has also served.
This year we also honour the 300 years since Nano Nagle, their foundress was born, ‘the lady with the lantern.’ Sister Breda has carried that lantern and brought hope and healing to many. Ad multos annos.
With every blessing in Christ, Michael McCabe Parish Priest
The Lord upholds my life.
