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.
In a coup for the NZ Catholic Church, the Festival will feature leadership and performance by the internationally recognised musician and worship leader, Matt Maher.
Arguably the biggest Catholic name in global contemporary Christian music, Matt Maher is an internationally acclaimed songwriter and worship leader. Born in Canada and now resident in Nashville, USA, Matt is excited about the opportunity to be with us here in Aotearoa, both learning from us, and sharing with us his music and leadership
Look out for more Presenter and Performer Announcements soon!
WHAT WILL YOU DO?
Focus on faith, the faith of young people.
The Festival will consist of a wide range of activities with highlights including the Festival Mass on the Saturday night preceded by the chance to participate in music and prayer led by international guest Matt Maher.
Immediately following the Festival, on the evening of Sunday December 3, Matt Maher will headline a public concert for the Christian community of Auckland at the Victory Convention Centre, Freemans Bay, Auckland. All Festival participants will receive premier VIP tickets to the Concert as part of their festival registration fee.
