St Michael's Ashburton Parish Day

On 19 May 19th St Michael's will hold their inaugural Parish Day. Archbishop Peter Comensoli will celebrate mass at 10:30pm. This will be followed by a barbecue and sporting activities for children. All welcome to help celebrate a wonderful parish community.

As part of the festivities, all past St Michael's students, as well as past and current parishioners are invited to participate in the mass choir and orchestra or perform music of their choice as general entertainment. Assistance is also required for serving and clearing up morning tea.  This is an excellent opportunity for community service and/or performance for secondary students.

Any students who would like to participate are asked to email Therese Molnar on She will provide music to those wishing to participate in the church choir/orchestra and confirm rehearsal times. She will also develop and advise the schedule for performances based on chosen music selections. Any general questions can be directed to John Whitehouse, Chair of the Parish Pastoral Council (
