2019 Diocesan Pastoral Day: Encounter

Together we will look at how young people experience and live their Catholic faith today – and why this needs to transform our school and parish communities. This day will involve keynote sessions from speakers across the country, small group discussions on how to implement new ideas back in your communities, and examples of how to connect with young people in ways that are natural to them.

Due to the extended travel times that some communities will have, we are also offering accommodation on the night of Wednesday 13th March in Te Rau Oriwa marae at St Mary’s Church.

What: Diocesan Pastoral Day: ‘Encounter’

Where: St Mary’s Church, 1 Campbell St, Whanganui (please note that this location is different from our usual Pastoral Day venue)
