Dedication of Aotearoa
New Zealand to Our Lady Assumed into Heaven

All the country’s Catholic bishops will gather in Wellington on Sunday 15 August for a Mass to renew Bishop Pompallier’s 1838 dedication of Aotearoa New Zealand to Our Lady Assumed into Heaven.

The Mass will be celebrated at the Wellington landmark St Mary of the Angels Church, which will be become the national shrine of Our Lady Assumed into Heaven.

August 15 is a Holy Day of Obligation for the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which this year is also a Sunday. Parishes throughout the country are invited to join in prayer for the renewal of the dedication.
