The following is a notice from Archbishops Don and Philip about the death, this morning, of one of the giants of Te Haahi Mihinare, the Anglican Church in Aotearoa New Zealand.
A date has been set for the installation of Bishop Don Tamihere as the next Pihopa o Aotearoa, or head of the Maori Anglican church.
Te Aute Trust Board has appointed Bishop Don Tamihere to shepherd its two schools into the future.
Te Runanga Whaiti (the Standing Committee of the Māori Anglican Church) has congratulated the new government – and suggested priorities.
Te Runanganui has successfully nominated one of its five bishops to become the next Pihopa o Aotearoa. The sanctioning process now begins.
