The Maori advisor to the New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference says Maori have a vital role to play in the church’s future, particularly in reaching out to young people and migrants.

Catholics are the largest denomination in New Zealand with nearly half a million members, almost 70,000 of whom are Maori.

Deacon Danny Karatea-Goddard says new migrants have kept the numbers up, and through the church they are getting exposure to things Maori.

He says his new part time role came out of a drive by the Maori Catholic Council to persuade the bishops to renew their commitment to a bicultural agenda.

"The bishops have made a commitment to make sure te reo Maori and a Maori perspective now is woven through all our business and I think we are at a new stage and a new era and the hope is immigrants and everyone will benefit from this, bringing our communities together realising we are a bicultural nation sitting in a multicultural society but we have got to get the bicultural thing sorted first, and I think that will be great for everyone," Mr Karatea-Goddard says.

The fear of admitting our Prison and Justice system is racist
MARTYN 'BOMBER' BRADBURY: The fear that seems to underpin so many of those voices attacking the Waitangi Tribunal's response that the failure to lower Maori incarceration and reoffending amounts to a Treaty breach needs to be acknowledged.
How Maori, young voters and Women will decide the 2017 Election
MARTYN 'BOMBER' BRADBURY: If we look at the opinion poll stats 6 months out from the last 3 elections, National over poll by a significant percentage, Labour over poll by a smaller percentage, the Greens are static and NZ First rises when Labour's vote collapses.
