WHAT'S ON IN AUCKLAND?
Events, programmes and liturgies are offered at regional and Diocesan level. Each year the ACYM team put together a planner so that leaders know what is planned and can take this into account when planning activities for their own groups.

The Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life."(CCC1324)
The Diocesan Youth Mass (DYM) gathers our young people across the Diocese to come together to celebrate Mass as one. Held on the last Sunday of the month (February-November) at St Patrick's Cathedral, each Mass has a theme and region/ faith community as host. All are welcome to gather with us!
Have no idea what XLT is about? It is a night of praise & worship followed by an inspirational message on a relevant topic and ends with spending time with our Lord during Eucharistic Adoration.
XLT was born out of a desire for teens to experience in a deep, personal, intimate way, worship through Eucharistic Adoration, engaging music, and powerful talks. It is a gathering for people of all ages who want to see, know, and love God. We come together to celebrate God’s love for us, and then are inspired to go out and share that love.
World Youth Day
WYD Lisboa/Lisbon 2023 theme:
Mary arose and left with haste (Luke 1:38)
World Youth Day (WYD) is a global Catholic Youth Festival which began when 300,000 young people from around the world answered the invitation from St Pope John Paul II in 1984 for an international Jubilee of youth on Palm Sunday. Inspired by our young people's faith, St John Paul II officially established WYD in 1986.
The Auckland Diocese have been involved in sending pilgrims from across New Zealand Aotearoa to WYD. Dreaming big, we pray to send OVER 200 pilgrims to WYD Lisboa 2023. Interested, intrigued or just wanting more information, contact the ACYM team!
