Dear Parishioners

Congratulations to Vivien Conroy who has been appointed as the new Principal of Our Lady of Kāpiti School from the beginning of Term II in 2018. Vivien is currently serving as Deputy-Principal of Kāpiti Primary School and is well known in the wider community. She and her family are well known parishioners and we are delighted to welcome her as Leader of our Parish School next year.

It has been a momentous year for the School with its opening in March and continued roll growth under the leadership of our soon-to-retire Principal Martin Elms. We wish all the staff and students and their families a very safe and blessed Christmas.

Thank you to all parishioners for a splendid year of faith and service and prayer and leadership in so many ways.  These are all reasons we truly rejoice on this Gaudete Sunday.

With every blessing in Christ,
Fr Michael McCabe, Parish Priest
