Reverend Cath Growcott, Parish of Porirua

The Reverend Cath Growcott has resigned from her position as Priest in Charge in the Parish of Porirua.  Cath has been in the parish for five years, and during that time she has been instrumental in creating a new worshipping congregation at Russell School, with the Urban Vision Cannon’s Creek team, alongside the existing congregation worshipping in the St Anne’s hall.

Cath will continue as intern mental health chaplain at Porirua Hospital, and spend time with her family.  Cath is aware of the stress she has been under balancing parish ministry and caring for her aging / dying mother, so is taking time out for reflection and renewal.
