Irish Capuchins Overseas Missions

New Zealand

New-Zealand
The first resident Catholic priest in Wellington, New Zealand was the Irish Capuchin, Br. Joseph O'Reilly, who arrived in 1843. The modern involvement of the Irish Capuchins in New Zealand began in 1958. There are now friars from New Zealand, Ireland and India. We have two houses, mostly involved in parish work. The main activity of the friars is fostering the faith in what is a largely post-Christian society.
In 2008 we celebrated our Golden Jubilee. Then in 2016,
almost 60 years of responsibility for New Zealand by the Irish Capuchin friars ended, and responsibility for the community here was transferred to the St Fidelis province of North India.
