Justice & Peace

Nau mai, Haere mai – Welcome!

Action on behalf of justice and participation in the transformation of the world fully appears to us as a constitutive dimension of the preaching of the gospel or, in other words, of the church’s mission for the redemption of the human race and its liberation from every oppressive situation.
– World Synod of Bishops, Justice in the World, 1971

The Justice and Peace Commission welcomes you to learn about the Commission and its work, find resources for justice education in parishes, learn about justice issues and link to the work of other like-minded justice groups.

The Commission has working Committees in several areas. Current Committees are Affordability of Housing, Environment/Sustainability, Human Life, Crime & Reconciliation, Social Welfare/Anti-Poverty, Peace & International Justice, Social Hazards and Treaty of Waitangi Relationships (click in the right-hand column of About Us for their work).  The Commission also maintains a watch for news on other domestic justice issues and international issues.
