New church nearly ready

The Northland Age - - Local News -

The new Catholic Church at Wai­harara will be in use for Christ­mas. The parish priest, Rev. Fr. J.P. Maguire, said he hoped the first Mass would be said on the first Sun­day next month.

The of­fi­cial open­ing will be held on Jan­uary 8, and will be con­ducted by Bishop R.J. De­largey of Auck­land.

The new church will be called the Church of Saints Cyril and Method­ius, the pa­tron saints of Dal­ma­tia.

Work is now al­most com­pleted. Seats to hold 110 peo­ple are ex­pected to ar­rive next week, and work on the grounds has still to be done.
