Kia ora and welcome to the website of Te Rūnanga o te Hāhi Katorika ki Aotearoa (the National Catholic Māori Council of New Zealand). This site is just in its early stages and some information is incomplete. We hope to have more resources available shortly.
You will see that we have the contact details of Te Rūnanga delegates from each Diocese on our ‘Contacts’ page. Please feel free to contact your local delegate if you wish to find out more about the work of Te Rūnanga. It is our hope that eventually this website will be of some assistance for those who are working with Māori, Catholics or in the area of faith and spiritual formation.
Let us share those many gifts God has given to all of us so that we can help each other grow in the knowledge and love of God “I am the Way”. Our Lady walks with us on the journey her Son calls us too and she says: “Do whatever He tells you” [John 2:5]
Nō reira, kia kaha tātou ki te pupuri i ngā taonga kua waiho hei oranga mō tātou katoa. Kia hari, kia koa, kia kaha tātou ki te pupuri i nga taonga kua waiho hei oranga mo tatou katoa. Kia hari, kia koa, kia kaha tatou ki te pono, ki te tika kia whakakotahi ai tatou, a, kia ea ai te korero a te Kaiwhakaora, “Ko Ahau te Huarahi”.
Noho ora i raro i ngā manaakitanga o te Matua, o te Tamaiti, o te Wairua Tapu. Mā te Whāea Takakau tātou katoa e awhi, e hāpai mō ake tonu atu.
Arohanui, nā mātou, nga mema o te Rūnanga o te Hāhi Katorika ki Aotearoa
E ngā mana, e ngā reo, e ngā karangatanga maha, tēnā koutou katoa.
Ka tangihia tonutia o tātou tini mate kua mene atu ki te pō, ki te Atua, te Matua nui i te rangi, ki te kainga tūturu hoki o te tangata.Haere koutou, haere, haere.
He mihi aroha he mihi mahana tēnei ki a Pihopa Barry Jones te Amorangi o Te Rūnanga o te Hāhi Katorika ki Aotearoa. Nau mai, piki mai, haere mai.
We welcome Bishop Barry Jones to Te Rūnanga o te Hāhi Katorika ki Aotearoa. Affectionately known as Pā Barry, the Rūnanga welcomed the new Conference Deputy to his first meeting on a brisk Mosgiel evening on Friday 9th February, 2007. Bishop Barry, impressed the Rūnanga with his capability in te reo Māori and the way he touched our hearts in his mihi and reflections of our late Pihopa Māori, Pā Tākuira. Many Te Waipounamu Māori remember Pā Barry as a younger keen priest at Te Rangimārie. Pā Barry, previously coadjutor to Bishop Cuneen, was appointed as Bishop on 4 May 2007. Nau mai e te Pīhopa, e te Hēpara pai.
Ko te Amorangi ki mua, ko te hāpai o ki muri. Haere mai, e Pā Tony, takahia mai ngā tapuwae o ngā matua pirihi o Pihopa Takuira me Pā Henare. Kākahutia to Korowai Whakapono hei awhina i to iwi Māori.
We welcome Fr Tony Brown the representative of Te Kāhui Ariki appointed to the Te Rūnanga o te Hāhi Katorika. Pā Tony has served in many parishes of the Auckland Diocese from Panguru to Te Unga Waka. PāTony is the chaplin of Hato Petera College where he now resides.
He mea taimaha te rapu kupu, hei mihi ki a koe e Pā. Kua hoki koe ki to kāinga whakatupuranga, ahakoa to hiahia ki te okioki, he maha tonu nga mahi kei mua i a tātou katoa. Nō reira, hoea to waka ki ngā rākau mānawa o to moana o Hokianga, ki ngā tauranga ika, hei whāngai i te mano. Noho ora mai ki te hau kāinga.
We wish Pā Henare Tate the very best in his retirement back to his home in Motuti. Pā was instrumental in the establishment of Te Rūnanga o Te Hāhi Katorika and inspired us all on journeys way and beyond our own expectations.
When we think of Māori Spirituality, of the meanings of tika, pono, aroha, tapu “I” and tapu “O” we echo the words of Pā Henare.
We thank his people of Ngāti Te Maara, Te Waiariki. We hope you receive him back in the same love and care you gave. “ although a little older but we say wiser”.
