This is the Archdiocese of Wellington and its people, working together to deepen their faith in Jesus Christ and to develop a community which supports the good of all. Everyone is welcome, and there are many ways to be involved, through parishes, schools, chaplaincies and Catholic organizations. “The future is, most of all, in the hands of those people who recognize the other as a ‘you’ and themselves as part of an ‘us.’ We all need one other.” Pope Francis
