NZ Census reports there’s more than 4000 Pastafarians registered

The most recent NZ Stats Census found over 4000 Pastafarians in New Zealand.  The NZ Herald notes that is three times the number of reported Destiny Church members (that’s a local fringe fundamentalist Church in NZ).  [here’s the full article]

I’m glad to hear the Church is going strong in NZ.   I lived there during college for a bit and was impressed, it doesn’t surprise me that the NZ people and its government have been so accepting of Pastafarians.

Checking the Minister registry, I see that we have over 250 Ordained Pastafarian Ministers operating in NZ.  [You can get Ordained here]

Here’s a map of our ministers (locations jostled a bit for anonymity). I’m working on a way for ministers to connect with one another. I suspect that many ministers are not aware of nearby Pastafarian people.
