Something a bit different today.
Earlier in the year I was appointed to work with the National Liturgy Office of Aotearoa New Zealand. Given that the Sunday liturgy is the only way that most New Zealand Catholics are in visible contact with the church, the NLO has a challenging role which is also full of potential. Hopefully Catherine Gibbs (NLO Administrative Assistant) and myself can continue the good work that has been done by previous staff and provide effective support to parishes and schools for their celebration of the liturgy.
We thought that brief video clips which could be played at the start of liturgy committee meetings might be a good way to start.
Below you will find the first one filmed at the beautiful church of St Raphael in Hawarden, in the Hurunui district.
