The Polish Community in Wellington, New Zealand, is a vibrant, social and culturally active community, that aims to share its rich Polish culture with the wider community and to pass on our culture to future generations. Our website provides you with an opportunity to learn something about our community as well as being a gateway to becoming involved in the Polish Community, either through The Polish Association in New Zealand, and/or other groups in the community.

ANZAC / Katyn Day

ANZAC day is on Tuesday 25 April. There will not be a mass at St Joachims or St Martin de Porres as advertised in Wiadomosci. Instead we are all invited to attend the ANZAC service at St Mary’s of the Angels at 9am at 17 Boulcott Street, Wellington which has just recently opened after major earthquake strengthening. In St Mary’s of the Angel’s is a plaque dedicated to the memory of Katyn which has not been available for viewing for the last four years. During the service there will be a dedication to the Katyn memorial with the Polish Embassy and members of the Polish community laying wreaths.

SPK Polish Returned Servicemen invite the community to a light Soldier’s lunch at 1 pm at the Polish House, followed by the viewing of the film Katyn in the library downstairs.
