WHAT IS THE FESTIVAL ABOUT?

Celebrating young people.

The Festival is an opportunity of encounter with God, the Church and hundreds of friends. The Festival will be a vehicle for Bishops and Church leaders to engage with young people, hearing from them how they see their world today. Registrations open July 15th.  Click here for full Festival details as they unfold.

The leaders of all youth groups in Dunedin have had input into this calendar.  We tried to spread the event venues around the city.  It is our hope that youth and young adults from the wider diocese will also be able to participate where able.  This is a start and our hope is that in subsequent years this may grow to events outside of Dunedin. There may be slight changes as developments take place.  Please contact Amy Armstrong at [email protected] / 027 237 6319 if you'd like to be involved in making this all happen.  Thank you!
