Cathedral of the Blessed Virgin Mary
From the Bishops statement on the General Election:
We are deeply disturbed by the growing prison population in NZ. It is a national disgrace. Crime rates have in fact fallen in NZ. What is driving the increase in prison numbers is changes to bail law, sentencing and parole. We want our communities to be safe. We want deterrents to be positive. Pathways of care and guidance, of participation and belonging, of work and purpose are what our at-risk young need, not corridors of bars and negative mentors.
