“All men and women are called to belong to the new people of God. Wherefore this people, while remaining one and only one, is to be spread throughout the whole world and must exist in all ages, so that the decree of God’s will may be fulfilled.”
Lumen Gentium, 13 (Dogmatic Constitution of the Church)
The Pastoral and Evangelisation Office of the Catholic Diocese of Auckland provides a wide range of information, resources and support for parish and ethnic communities in the diocese regarding pastoral planning in general and the current Diocesan Pastoral Plan- Fit For Mission.
We also organise the annual Bishop’s Forums and lead the diocese’s effort in ecumenism and inter-faith relations.
We commit ourselves to ensure that all the faithful in our diocese are enabled to answer the universal call to holiness through active participation in the life and mission of the Church.
