Earthquake in Christchurch


07/09/2010: New Zealand

On Saturday 4 September, the city of Christchurch in New Zealand was struck by an earthquake which damaged many buildings. The Marist community of Christchurch is composed of three Brothers. The three are in retirement but help out in the parish. Neither the brothers nor their house suffered any harmful effects from the quake.

Despite the extent of the damage, only two persons in the city of 340,000 inhabitants were seriously injured. In the opinion of the experts, it is thanks to the strict respect for preventive measures that there were so few victims.
