The Catholic Diocese of Christchurch has released a diocese property earthquake update here.
The update includes the following:
Bishop Barry has provided information to parishes regarding the Diocesan Earthquake Strategy
In his letter he states that "Since the earthquakes, the diocese is working on two levels. A Strategy Committee is looking at the overall church and school needs for the diocese over the next 30 to 50 years, while on a more immediate level diocesan staff and professional advisors are looking at all parish properties that may be repaired and/or strengthened.
As you will be aware, the extent of repair differs greatly from no damage to demolition."
