Welcome to our Parish

Kia ora, welcome, to St Francis of Assisi Ohariu Parish, Wellington. We are a community of three churches reaching from Crofton Downs to Grenada, reflecting a warm and diverse community inviting anyone who wishes to celebrate God’s love to join us in prayer.

We aspire to live the values reflected in the prayer often attributed to our Patron, St Francis of Assisi – although most likely written more recently: "Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where  there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.”

Ever wondered what Catholics believe?
