The Takirua 2020: Shaping the Mission conference planned for Wellington from 24 to 26 April has been postponed till later this year because of uncertainties caused by the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.

The decision to postpone has been made before setting a new date, to provide clarity and certainty for people around the April dates in the face of the rapidly changing pandemic issue.

The conference has been jointly promoted by Catholic Network of Marriage Educators and the NZ Catholic Bishops’ Council for Young People.

“We are working on alternative dates and as soon as further decisions are made, we will be in touch via email, social media and on our website,” said Chris Duthie-Jung. Director, Marriage, Family & Young Church Ministries at the Archdiocese of Wellington.

Registrations are refundable upon request, as the conference cannot now happen on the originally advertised dates.

“However, we encourage registered delegates to consider waiting until new dates are announced before deciding to attend or seek a refund.”
