Just as we need the courage to be happy, we also need the courage to live simply

Young Catholics - Get involved

All our prayers, initiatives and hopes focus on understanding and loving Jesus and his Church by vibrantly living the breadth and depth of our faith. As disciples of Jesus and members of his Church, we are integral to parish life, and the ministry and mission of each parish and Eucharistic community embraces us.

Our roles include Parish Youth Ministry across each region within the Diocese, College Chaplaincy, Tertiary Chaplaincy, Young Adult Ministry

Are you in the Manawatu tomorrow? If you are come along to this event advertised by Georgia!

Hi all! It'll be our first event of the year tomorrow after the 6pm mass at the cathedral. We're having a pot luck dinner so please bring a plate of food to share. It's at Te Ahi Kaa, 25 amesbury steet which is just next to the cathedral, from about 7pm. Please let me know if you have any questions. We'd love to see you there. Thanks, Georgia
