From our Outreach Ministry:

There is nothing more comforting for new Filipino migrants than to see familiar faces, Filipinos like them who would make them feel welcomed and at home.  This why the Filipino mass on the 3rd Sunday Mass on 15 May 2011 at St Joseph in Mt Victoria will be offered for the new migrants.  A fellowship and shared meal will follow after the mass.  This will be an opportunity for each one of us who have gone through the same experience of settling in New Zealand to show our support for the new migrants.  Please encourage any new Filipino migrant you know in your area to be there and let us made them feel welcomed.   

Also, Laura Cendak from the Settlement Support Group will give a talk about settlement support.  Settlement starter kits which contain brochures and pamphlets on renting, education, transportation, language help line, ESOL, etc. will be given away.  Any donated ‘white elephant’ items will also be raffled away .
