We are delighted to announce that we are back on-site in Innes Road from the beginning of July 2012. After the announcement at the start of May that Our Lady of Fatima Church could not be used due to earthquake proneness, we moved our Sunday celebrations of Mass to Papanui Parish’s school Hall.
At the same time we undertook an intensive period of activity, working to restore the Mairehau parish hall into a suitable place for celebration of Mass. Now the restoration is complete. So Mass is once again being celebrated every day at our new temporary church (the former parish hall) in Innes Road.
Weekday Mass times –9.15am
Sunday Mass times – Saturday 5.30pm, Sunday 7.30am, 9.00am, 10.30am
Confessions – Thursdays 5.00pm and Saturdays 9.45am. Held in the sacristy (entry through Church and sanctuary, door on right). Confession behind the screen or face-to-face available.
Access to our parish property – The entrance to our property between the Church and the former Good Shepherd House will be closed off. All access to the school and grounds will be via the space between the presbytery and the Church. Please drive carefully as this space is to be shared by pedestrians and cars. Please refer to the updated Traffic Management plan for details.
