PAHIATUA — St Brigid’s Church, Pahiatua, has recently been renovated, upgraded, and earthquake
strengthened to the new building code. Stage one involved the replacement of the flat
roof with a pitched roof, and considerable interior refurbishment.
Stage two will involve the extension of the gathering area, kitchen, parish office and toilets.
Funding for stage one came from parishioner donations, and funding for stage two will come from the sale of the Brigidine Convent, as well as the sale of sections on the old convent site.
The old convent site is now renamed “Brigidine Place”.
Of the six sections for sale, three have been sold. Already, a two-bedroom house is partially completed on the first section.
