What is Te Runanga o te Hahi Katorika ki Aotearoa?
Te Rūnanga o te Hāhi Katorika ki Aotearoa The Rūnanga is a comission of the NZCBC. It meets twice yearly in different parts on New Zealand (usually one meeting in the North Island and one in the South).
Rūnanga members are appointed to represent the 6 different diocese of NZ. The bishops appoint two delegates per diocese.
There are also representatives from the clergy and the secretary is appointed by the Rūnanga executive.
TE KAHUI O TE ARIKI Te Kahui o te Ariki is the name given by Pihopa Takuira to the combined grouping of Maori Priests, Maori Religious Brothers and Sisters.
In the past the group met to talk about issues affecting Catholic Maori. After his consecration as Bishop Pihopa Takuira Mariu saw Te Kahui o te Ariki as his advisory group on matters pertaining to Pastoral Care of Maori.

Te Pae TukutukuThe Website of the National Catholic Maori Council of New Zealand
Kia ora and welcome to the website of Te Rūnanga o te Hāhi Katorika ki Aotearoa (the National Catholic Māori Council of New Zealand). This site is just in its early stages and some information is incomplete. We hope to have more resources available shortly.
You will see that we have the contact details of Te Rūnanga delegates from each Diocese on our ‘Contacts’ page. Please feel free to contact your local delegate if you wish to find out more about the work of Te Rūnanga. It is our hope that eventually this website will be of some assistance for those who are working with Māori, Catholics or in the area of faith and spiritual formation.
Let us share those many gifts God has given to all of us so that we can help each other grow in the knowledge and love of God “I am the Way”. Our Lady walks with us on the journey her Son calls us too and she says: “Do whatever He tells you” [John 2:5]
Nō reira, kia kaha tātou ki te pupuri i ngā taonga kua waiho hei oranga mō tātou katoa. Kia hari, kia koa, kia kaha tātou ki te pupuri i nga taonga kua waiho hei oranga mo tatou katoa. Kia hari, kia koa, kia kaha tatou ki te pono, ki te tika kia whakakotahi ai tatou, a, kia ea ai te korero a te Kaiwhakaora, “Ko Ahau te Huarahi”.
Noho ora i raro i ngā manaakitanga o te Matua, o te Tamaiti, o te Wairua Tapu. Mā te Whāea Takakau tātou katoa e awhi, e hāpai mō ake tonu atu.
Arohanui, nā mātou, nga mema o te Rūnanga o te Hāhi Katorika ki Aotearoa
