Our annual Suzanne Aubert Celebration day is being celebrated Sunday October 3, the first Sunday in October closest to the anniversary of her death (October 1st 1926).

The purpose of this important national day of celebration is to have many more people learn of the spirituality and good works of Venerable Suzanne Aubert and to be inspired by what she did and what she achieved. It also provides all Catholics the opportunity to commit to praying that the church will soon recognise this remarkable woman of great faith, as a Saint.

Realising that many new Catholics in New Zealand have probably never heard of Suzanne Aubert, we are very grateful that the Bishops and parish priests around the country allow us this opportunity once a year to better inform parishioners of who she was and what she did.

This year, with COVID-19 restrictions meaning many churches are closed, there will be a special Mass celebrated by Cardinal John Dew at the chapel in Island Bay, and this Mass will be broadcast on Shine TV at 2pm. You can watch this on Sky Channel 201 or Freeview Channel 25.  It will also be available later in the day on YouTube.
