Tēnā koutou katoa  


We are now in the second week of Lent, and almost a third of the way through the year!
The effects of Cyclone Gabrielle are still being felt in parts of our diocese - please consider dontating to our Cyclone Relief Appeal if you haven't already done so. Many thanks to all those who have generously helped in whatever way they can.
As well as informtion about the Diocesan Cyclone response, in this issue you'll also find a review of the popular TV series The Chosen, and prayer resources for two important dates in the Church's calendar later this month. Enjoy!

This article describes just some of the incredible support that has been offered so far across the Diocese of Palmerston North.
