Aotearoa Catholic Youth Festival 2017

Spend the weekend at the Festival and be changed for a lifetime!

Hosted by the New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference, the Aotearoa Catholic Youth Festival is taking place in Auckland on the weekend of 2-3 December 2017 with the theme Face to Face, Kanohi Ki Te Kanohi. It will be an amazing weekend of encountering God, the Church and hundreds of friends from all over New Zealand, and a time to celebrate our faith and build community!

As part of the festival, internationally recognised musician and worship leader Matt Maher will be joining us and having a public concert on the Sunday night. The weekend will also feature keynote speakers, heaps of workshops, praise and worship, an expo with live music and festival vibes and of course, the Sacraments!

Tickets for the festival are $95, including VIP tickets to Matt Maher’s concert, Saturday dinner, Sunday lunch and the whole festival experience! This is a celebration you don’t want to miss – REGISTER HERE!

Sponsorship is now open for the Festival. We encourage parents, friends and parishioners to support young people and make a huge investment in their spiritual future by sponsoring them to attend the festival.  Click here to download a sponsorship form or contact Teresa (,nz).
