“May the Church be a place of God’s mercy and hope, where all feel welcomed, loved, forgiven and encouraged to live according to the good life of the Gospel.”
– Pope Francis during a General Audience on June 12, 2013
Parishes are where the Church lives; the home of the Christian community. Parishes are communities of faith, of action and of hope, where the gospel is proclaimed and celebrated.
The Catholic Diocese of Christchurch is comprised of 18 parishes serving the needs of  all people in parts of Canterbury and the West Coast, New Zealand.
These dedicated parishes reflect the multicultural and unique foundation of the Diocese. In addition to the celebration of the sacraments, our parishes also offer community programmes, parish ministries and faith formation.
