In the Beginning

On the 16th of June 1983 the first meeting of Catholic Women in Aglow was led by Fr. Paul Shannahan to discover the needs of Catholic Women in the renewal. Out of the meeting grew ‘Dove Fellowship for Catholic Women’

On Saturday 26th May 1984 the first Seminar Day was held at Baradene Convent Hall, Remuera, Auckland.

Theme: ‘Come Away My Beloved’

”The voice of the Turtle Dove will be heard in the Land”- Song of Songs 2-12.

220 Women attended in response to the invitation experiencing Praise, Worship, Ministry and Fellowship – the core values of Dove.

2024 celebrates 40 years of Dove Catholic Fellowship for Women in New Zealand. Each month we will be celebrating themes of our Dove journey. We invite you to attend the 40th celebrations at fellowships in North Shore, Hamilton and Nelson throughout the year. More details to come…
