Diocesan Youth Mass And Youth Awards
November 29, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Bishop Michael will preside at the November Diocesan Youth Mass. During the Mass members of the Diocesan whanau will be presented with Tu Kahikatea Awards. These awards are supported by the New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference and promoted, decided and awarded by our local ACYM team from nominations from our faith communities, The Awards are about recognising the gift that youth and young adults are to the Catholic Church in Aotearoa New Zealand, and thanking them for the outstanding contributions they make to their community. They are named after the New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference statement – Tu Kahikatea: Standing Tall – A Framework for Catholic Ministry with Young People in Aotearoa New Zealand.
At the Mass we will also honour and congratulate winners of the 2020 Delargey Awards. These awards aim to provide recognition for ministry workers and supporters of ministry with young people; to educate the community about ministry with young people; to raise the profile of Catholic ministry with young people, and recognise the place of long-term involvement in Catholic ministry with young people.
