Tūmanako is a pastoral initiative from the Diocese of Palmerston North.

That means it’s more than a website, collection of articles, or online presence. Tūmanako is a hub for all pastoral work (ie prayer, ministry, formation, evangelisation – the good stuff) across the diocese. As resources are developed and this initiative is expanded, you’ll see the Tūmanako brand reaching out to our parishes, schools and other communities.
