Our Mantra

One Mission. One Parish. Four Communities

From the Sounds to the Sea, the Mountains to the Plains

We are the Catholic Communities of Wairau,  Kaikoura, Sounds, and Awatere

Mission Statement

We the people of Te Whetu O te Moana, Star of the Sea Parish, are committed by our baptism in Christ, to share our living faith, and make God visible, in joyful union with all people by our actions in the community.

One Parish, Seven Communities

We are a very large geographic parish, stretching from Havelock & Picton in the NW, through Blenheim, the Awatere and on to Kaikoura in the SE. From the Tasman Coast we stretch more than 100km inland to the Molesworth Cattle Station. Large or small, all our seven communities are served with generosity and joy.

Our families come from a growing and wider cultural background, and a wide mix of employment, including: cattle, education, fishing, grains & gardens, health care, local government, retired, salt works, sheep, tourism, & wine industry.

Come and See

Whether you are visiting and checking for Mass times, or staying a time, I invite you to view the various aspects of our website to learn about our communities and our ministries. And if you are a local or staying, please consider what gifts you might bring to the community, so we can better serve the wider communities we belong to.
