Through the centuries God has given us signs to show the validity of the Holy Eucharist.

This sign is special indeed.

  1. Hello. We are a Catholic Shop situated in Mt Roskill, Auckland.
    Our shop is a supportive branch of the wider Apostolate, Family Life International, which has been operating now in excess of 25 years, supporting Mothers and Babies. Recently, we had the opening of the St Gianna’s Home for Mothers and Babies in Pukekohe. The work done to assist Mothers in their greatest need both before and after birth, is dear to our hearts and a most necessary presence in the current social climate of 2021 and even in the many years preceding this. We would be grateful for the opportunity to have a presence at the coming Eucharistic Convention. We sell quality Catholic goods – books and sacramentals – imported from Europe and South America and have enjoyed past Eucharistic Conventions, including the last one hosted in Auckland a little while ago.
    We look foward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.
