Bishop says Catholic church should consider naming abusers
A Catholic bishop says the Church could consider releasing the names of clergy who abuse children, even if they don't go through the courts. Bishop Paul Martin has released a file on predator priest Cornelius O'Brien to one of his victims, a Christchurch man now in his 50s.

Business-faith study offered
Sound business management skills and spiritual thought are not ideas that necessarily go together automatically. However, the University of Otago's department of religion and theology and its business school are joining forces to fill a gap in the market, creating two new postgraduate qualifications in faith-based leadership and management.

STATION XV


Episode 131 — Convention, Confession, Confusion and Consternation (16 September 2018)
It's a fairly heavy — and sombre — episode of The 15th Station this month, as Anna, James and Gavin survey the fairly challenging landscape for Catholics in most parts of the world, as the sexual abuse crisis continues to loom large over this era and this papacy. Pope Francis has called a meeting of the presidents of bishops' conferences, while the Church in Australia has responded to the forensic examination it (and other institutions) received during the Royal Commission. In New Zealand, voices are being raised to defeat euthanasia legislation and there are new stats about annulments — but what do they mean? And, in the Czech Republic, what do spooky, ghostly figures in a Catholic church mean?

Why Francis's child protection summit may be highest-stakes gamble of his papacy
https://cruxnow.com/news-analysis/2018/09/13/why-franciss-child-protection-summit-may-be-highest-stakes-gamble-of-his-papacy/

Wednesday's big Vatican story was clearly the announcement that Pope Francis has summoned all the presidents of national conferences of Catholic bishops from around the world, more than 100 prelates in all, to Rome Feb. 21-24 for a session on "the protection of minors". The February meeting has "not business as usual" written all over it. It's rare for the Vatican to summon all the presidents of the world's bishops' conferences for any reason, and it's the first time ever the Vatican has convened such a cross-section of senior leadership to talk about the abuse crisis...

Seal of the confessional a tough sell in atmosphere of crisis

Among non-Catholics - and, for that matter, among some Catholics too - an announcement by the Australian bishops on Friday that the seal of the confessional is "non-negotiable," even in cases of child sexual abuse, elicited incomprehension, outrage, and borderline disbelief. For those folks, what they heard boils down to this: The Church is saying that its archaic traditions and rules trump both the law of the land and child safety. Yet for anyone trying to understand the situation, here's a recap of the basics ...

Bishop apologises to Dunedin: 'It's indefensible' (photo)
Michael Dooley, the Bishop of Dunedin, has apologised to the city and asked for forgiveness, after admitting the Catholic Church failed to protect children from paedophiles disguised as men of the cloth. And, as more victims continue to come forward, he has also added his voice to growing calls for churches to be included in the Government's upcoming Royal Commission into historic abuse.

Bishop's open letter tells of pain, distress (photo)
Days after Pope Francis wrote an open letter to all Catholics, condemning child abuse and its concealment within the Church, the Bishop of Dunedin has followed in his footsteps. Dunedin Bishop the Most Rev Michael Dooley yesterday made public a letter he has penned to his diocese, which is to be included in parish newsletters across the lower South Island.

FROM THE SECULAR PRESS 

*******************

Catholic Church apologises for comments on abuse
The Catholic Church in New Zealand has been forced to apologise for comments implying parents bore some responsibility for stopping clerical sexual abuse. The statements by Monsignor John Harrison, of the Catholic Diocese of Dunedin, and Auckland Bishop Patrick Dunn came in an Otago Daily Times article, published last week.

Brother blamed for death (photos)
An ODT Insight investigation, as part of the ongoing "Marked by the Cross" series, has uncovered allegations of historic sexual abuse, dating back to the 1970s, levelled against two Christian Brothers.

Gaudi's Sagrada Familia Cathedral raised in push for Arrowtown's Olive Leaf building (illustration)
The drive to build a new, leaf-shaped church building in Central Otago has been likened to the push to compete the Sagrada Familia Cathedral in Barcelona. The multipurpose Olive Leaf Centre building is described as a "gift" to the Catholic parish and wider community in Arrowtown.

STATION XV


Episode 130 — Abolition, Resignation, Sanctification, Vocation and CELEBRATION!!

There are many serious topics on this month's agenda, but the episode starts with a celebration of 11 years of The 15th Station. The reminiscing gives way to the important discussion of a change to the Church's official teaching on the death penalty and the resignations of two senior Catholic leaders. Despite the challenges the Church is facing in many places, Auckland Bishop Patrick Dunn has urged young people to strive for holiness, which is what an Irish priest is also hoping will be a fruit of Pope Francis' upcoming trip to the country this month.

Priest leaves Whanganui on a high note having struck a chord with the community (photo)
When he moved to Whanganui about six and a half years ago, Father Louis Bochkolz began playing soccer in a local rebel league and opened his account with a bicycle kick goal. Father Bochkolz is a Roman Catholic priest and has proudly worn his collar while playing the game that he loves for Castlecliff Football Club.

Inclusion the responsibility of everyone
People with disabilities want to be treated as people first - rather than by being defined by impairment and everyone has a role to play in helping bring that to fruition. That was the message from the 2018 Social Justice Week Workshop held on Saturday August 4 at St Thomas More Parish Church in Mount Maunganui.
