Welcome to the first edition of Tūmanako

Tūmanako is a new pastoral initiative from the Diocese of Palmerston North. You can expect monthly editions of this email, regular posts on our new Tūmanako website, and more mission-focused work coming later in the year.

We invite you to join us as we share and discover how we are united in hope through our faith in Jesus Christ - and how we can share this hope with our country.

I te Tūmanako o te Kotahitanga | United in Hope

Tūmanako is a pastoral initiative of the Diocese of Palmerston North.

This initiative celebrates our unity as the people of God in this time and place. And we celebrate this unity in the context of hope; hope in Christ, hope in faith, in love and in the gifts we are given.
In the context of tūmanako/hope, we will look back at where we have come from, marking our 40th year as the Diocese of Palmerston North. We will explore where we find ourselves now, even in the midst of local and global challenges. And we will invite God to continue to lead us, to reveal to us where we are being called and how we should strive to live.
