Vocations

Be bold! Be courageous! Be Christ in the world and make your voice heard!

Pope Francis has called a Synod on Young People, Faith and Vocational Discernment. As part of this process, we have some exciting things happening in our diocese, especially about vocations!

Voice To Vatican | National Youth Survey

The Bishops of Aotearoa New Zealand are calling young people aged 16-29 and those older who are involved in or support youth ministry to join the worldwide conversation by filling in the National Youth Survey. The surveys close on Sunday 27 August, so don’t miss out on this opportunity to use your voice and make a difference!
