"Parishes should be close-knit communities, without bureaucracy, people-centered - a place where the gift of the sacraments can be found.
They have to become, once again, schools of service and generosity, with their doors always open to those who are excluded."

Welcome to our Parish of St Thomas Aquinas, Tauranga Moana

The Parish of St Thomas Aquinas was formed from the amalgamation of St Joseph’s (Te Puna) and St Mary Immaculate (Tauranga) in January 2015. It is one of the largest parishes in the Diocese of Hamilton. There are many groups and activities within the parish that cater for our multi-cultural Catholic Community.

This website provides details of some of these activities and other Catholic organisations.

We hope this virtual introduction encourages you to visit us in reality, and to participate in the life of our parish.
