FEEDBACK from the Catholic youth ministers conference

I wish to thank the Catholic Foundation for the wonderful support of the NZCBC National Catholic Conference for Youth and Young Adult Ministers which was held in Palmerston North from November 13-16th 2011.

Your grant towards airfares, accommodation and registration was most generous and assisted greatly in providing an opportunity for youth ministers from the far north and the deep south to participate.

The purpose of the bi-annual conference was to provide professional development, networking, resource sharing and faith formation for the many volunteer youth ministers who coordinate youth services, faith and leadership development across the country in a myriad of ways e.g., youth events, camps, service opportunities etc.

The Conference was a wonderful success with over 70 participants coming from around the country and I believe we well and truly achieved the purpose for gathering. Thank you again for your support.
