Bishop Patrick Dunn – A Patron of NZ Rosary Crusade

“When Bishop Pompallier first celebrated Mass in Aotearoa New Zealand in January 1838, he placed our country under the protection of Mary assumed into heaven.  In the Rosary Crusade, let us ask her to bless our efforts to create a society in which life is respected and treasured from the moment of conception until natural death.”

“Prayer belongs to being human; life without prayer is less than human. I support your public witness and the need for prayer.”
