Welcome to the thematic area of Faith Central. The resources below have been put together to support young people, their families and parishes to delve a little deeper into particular themes in response to requests from the New Zealand Catholic Bishops or schools. If you have resources of your own on particular themes please contact NCRS and we will be in touch.
