Taranaki Diocesan School for Girls

I have been Chaplain at Taranaki Diocesan School for girls for three years (previously Saint Mary’s Diocesan School).  As a vocational deacon and a health professional, this role brings my passions together for young people, radical discipleship & well-being. Originally from the Waikato, my family is now deeply embedded in Taranaki.  Our connection with the people of Taranaki Cathedral and Parihaka Papakāinga invite us to experience reconciliation, through truth telling as we heal our histories. I can be contacted via e-mail at or by leaving a message with the school office 06 765 5333.  Grace and Peace. Revd Annie Baigent-Ritchie.
