It is our great joy that Reverend David Rowe has accepted the call to join you in July as Dean of the Cathedral. We are grateful to him and Pixie for making this commitment to serve you in this next season.

Art lovers will have the opportunity to view the suite of eight paintings by renowned New Zealand artist Melvin Dayentitled StabatMaterDolorosa, which have been gifted to Wellington Cathedral of St Paul by Day’s estate. They are being unveiled in the Cathedral during the Choral Evensong service on Sunday 18 March at 5pm, and will thereafter be on permanent display.
We often see people in need in our world, in our communities and have no idea how to respond. We are made in the image and likeness of God and so we feel compassion and long for things to be different, to be healed, to be reconciled. But what can we do? For faith without actions is dead!
During Lent this year we will be working through the devotional created by the Anglican Diocese of Wellington, A Sent People. This is a stunning resource to guide small groups through six weeks of study and discussion. Along with the detailed adult group studies, the resource contains weekly movie recommendations with discussion questions to provide another angle on this year’s theme of “being sent.” The inter-generational studies are great for families to do together, and contain their own movie recommendations that the kids will love.
