The Diocese of Waikato celebrated the eightieth anniversary of inauguration over the weekend of 10 – 12 March 2006. People came from all over the diocese to a weekend gathering at Ngaruawahia. Lord Eames, the Archbishop of Armagh, was the main speaker and preacher at the celebration Eucharist. There was time for old stories and reminiscences, workshops and discussions, bible studies, fun and laughter, a festal dinner and Eucharist on Sunday. Numbers required the Eucharist to be held in the chapel at Waikato Diocesan School for Girls. Archdeacon Kelvin Wright, came from Dunedin to lead the studies; Bishop Made Katib and Dean Aeries came from Kuching (our partner diocese); Bishop George Connor, senior Tikanga Pakeha bishop spent the weekend here at the Friary.
