Young Catholics keen to increase Maori focus
Young catholics are looking at how they can better work with Maori.
More than 600 Catholics aged from 15 to 29 were in Auckland over the weekend for the first Aotearoa Catholic Youth Festival of worship, discussion and performance
Maori organising committee member Arama Pou says the festival included extensive bilingual signage and people were encouraged to use te reo words and phrases where they could.
"There wasn't a specific workshop about engagement with or anything to do with Maori because we wanted each presenter to address that in their own way, so each addressed that – how do we and how can we work with Maori in our areas," he says.
