Constitution Te Pouhere Sunday 

The Anglican Church enjoys celebrating special occasions within the church calendar. 

General Synod included Te Pouhere Constitution Sunday in the Lectionary and the Church Calendar for the 2nd Sunday after Pentecost. It’s one of a number of ‘special Sundays’ that the Calendar offers us.
