A poetry show like no other!

On the back of a sell-out show at The Convent, Hiruhārama - Jerusalem, Chris Gallavin takes his utterly unique, engaging and entertaining poetry show to Our Lady's Home of Compassion, Island Bay. This is a show that weaves the narrative of New Zealand as a people, a country and a mix of cultures, through carefully written and selected poems, stories, and music. Accompanied by Paul Turner of Ceol Manawatu and surrounded by a spectacular exhibition of photographs taken at their recent sold-out show in Jerusalem, this is a show not to be missed!

24 August 2019, 3:00pm-5:30pm.
Our Lady's Home of Compassion, 2 Rhine Street (off Murray Street), Island Bay, Wellington.

You are invited to the Commemorative Birthday Mass for Suzanne Aubert at 6:00pm on Wednesday 19 June 2019.

The annual Mass will be celebrated by Cardinal John Dew at St Anne's Church, 22 Emmett Street, Newtown, Wellington.

We will be taking up a collection of food items for the Soup Kitchen Wellington during the Mass. Donations of canned vegetables, fruit, soup, coconut milk, and fish, as well as dried goods such as coffee (fresh and instant), lentils, split peas, and pearl barley, would be much appreciated.

The Sisters of Compassion and the Catholic Parish of Wellington South are hosting the Mass which will be followed by refreshments in St Anne's Hall.

This year marks the 184th anniversary of Suzanne Aubert’s birth. Suzanne was born near Lyon in France and her response to the Gospel brought her to Aotearoa New Zealand in 1860. She devoted her life to supporting the Māori people, and to helping the suffering and those most in need. Suzanne is New Zealand’s first Saint in the making and was declared Venerable in 2016.
