A new Catholic church for the St Joseph’s Papanui site?

A new Catholic church is set to be built at the St Joseph's Papanui site at the corner of Main North Road & Vagues Road, amalgamating the current Mairehau, Burnside, and Papanui Parishes. This is part of a proposal announced on Sunday by the Bishop of Christchurch. The proposal will be open for feedback from 22 June, with a final decision to be announced in December 2019.
