Visit to Ratana 2016

Visit to Ratana 2016

Justin at RatanaBishop Justin and extended members of the Diocesan Leadership Team were privileged to be invited back to Ratana for the annual celebration of the birthday of Tahupotiki Wiremu Ratana.  This year we were invited to attend Mass in the Temple.  The main message from the sermon centred around unity, and the alignment of five planets (the first time in five years) in January and February 2016.  It was noted “if the planets can align, then why can’t we?”

Our thanks go to the Ratana community for their generous hospitality and for the honour of sharing in their celebrations.
