Cathedral of the Blessed Virgin Mary
From the Bishops statement on the General Election:
Care for our common home, mother earth is a centre stage global challenge.  Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’ has become an authoritative reference point in this quest. NZ’s export based economy has started to show its environmental limits, with increased greenhouse gas emissions, diffuse freshwater pollution and threats to biodiversity.  Are we, as a nation, really pulling our weight on climate change when we plan to meet our commitments in this regard by simply buying carbon credits from other countries?
