The new John Paul II Pastoral Centre, currently under construction, is part of a plan to ensure care for the souls of the archdiocese as well as the planet. To limit the impact the offices have on the environment, building plans were designed to meet the gold level in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification.
