KIA ORA KOUTOU - WELCOME to the Catholic Parish of New Plymouth website!
The Catholic Parish of New Plymouth is a parish within the Diocese of Palmerston North. It is made up of multiple places of worship, where everyone is welcome. Our faith communities meet at Bell Block Catholic Centre, Our Lady Help of Christians Fitzroy, St Josephs Church New Plymouth and St Patricks Okato.
We recognise the Treaty of Waitangi as a founding document of New Zealand. This partnership between Tangata Whenua and the Crown is the basis of our multicultural inclusion. We are blessed with a community rich with ethnic diversity.
In our lives we try to live out the Gospel values in our Catholic heritage and pass them on to the upcoming generations. In the spirit of Jesus we try to reach out to those among us who are in need of our support and care within our parish and beyond.
