This short clip (filmed by TV NZ) shows a ceremony on the slopes of Mt Erebus in Antarctica to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the "Erebus Disaster" when an Air New Zealand DC-10 carrying tourists crashed on the slopes of Mount Erebus, killing all aboard. This ceremony in January 2010, shows the blessing of a "koru" shaped memorial containing messages from relatives and loved ones of those who died, and the sprinkling of water from Mt Auraki (Mt Cook) from maori of New Zealand. The event was made possible through the co-operation and contribution of the American and New Zealand representatives in Antarctica, and Church representatives and Air New Zealand in Aotearoa New Zealand. The person officiating is Fr. Philip Gibbs SVD, Catholic chaplain in Antarctica at the time.
