Bishop Campbell expresses sympathy to Easy Rider families

On behalf of the Catholic Diocese of Dunedin, which includes Southland and Otago, Bishop Colin Campbell has expressed sympathy for the victims of the Easy Rider boating tragedy and their families.

The Easy Rider, a fishing boat with nine people on board, sank just off Stewart Island in Foveaux Strait early last  Thursday morning, 16 March. One survivor was found, while four bodies have been recovered.

“On behalf of the Catholic Diocese of Dunedin, I wish to express my deepest and prayerful sympathies for those who have drowned in this recent tragedy in Foveaux Strait. Our prayers and thoughts are with their grieving families. At Mass today in Wellington, I prayed for those who have died and for the families and friends affected, and asked those at Mass to keep them in their prayers”.
