March 7, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

TOUR IS FULLY BOOKED! Please email heritagecentre@compassion.org.nz if you would like to be notified of the next pilgrimage hikoi date.

Follow the footsteps of Suzanne Aubert, Meri Hōhepa, the woman who will become New Zealand’s first saint, through Wellington city. Discover the places where this remarkable woman lived out a life of faith and compassion in a practical way, as she tended to the most pressing social needs of the day.

The tour begins at Suzanne’s Historic Crèche (now the Pukeahu Education Centre) in Buckle Street and continues to sites of significance in Suzanne’s story, including the present day Compassion Soup Kitchen and St Mary of the Angel’s, the church where Suzanne Aubert’s funeral was held in 1926.

Bring your own lunch. We will stop at the Soup Kitchen for a cup of tea.
