"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."

There is a Collegial Area Youth Group running at All Saints by the Sea Parish (St Thomas More Church, Mount Maunganui).  This youth group is held every Friday in the St Thomas More parish lounge at 6:30 pm. For more info contact Kirsty on 021 78 1812
