Redemptorists have been present in the lives of the people of New Zealand for over 130 years. Australian Redemptorists began travelling to New Zealand to preach summer missions beginning in 1883. The success of these missions, and the connections they made with the communities they served, led to the acquisition of a property on Wellington’s Mount Victoria. This was to be the site of the first Redemptorist community to permanently settle in New Zealand.
Today the Redemptorists continue to accompany and journey with the people of New Zealand. The Redemptorists currently serve two parishes in Auckland New Zealand; St Anthony’s Parish and St Thérèse’s Parish. These two parishes are known as the Mangere Catholic Parishes. Both parishes have a significant community of Samoan and Tongan parishioners who bring distinct cultural traditions to these vibrant parishes.
