Young Catholics and Mormons to meet political leaders

Around forty young adult Catholics and Mormons (the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints) from around the country will visit some of New Zealand’s political leaders at Parliament later this month.

They will meet with Prime Minister John Key and a number of Members of Parliament on 25 June.

The visit is being jointly organised by Catholics and Mormons to expose some of the churches’ young adults to the leaders of the nation, and also to introduce Mr Key and MPs to the group.

On the day before the visit to parliament, Tuesday 24 June, the group will assemble personal care kits for men at the Wellington Night Shelter, visit the Wellington Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, learn about Caritas, and attend a devotional service in Porirua with leaders from both churches.

Elder Kevin W. Pearson, a member of the Latter-day Saints’ Pacific Area Presidency, will speak to the young adults on Tuesday evening, and also participate in the visit to Parliament.

Sister Catherine Jones smsm, Chair of the NZ Catholic Bishops Committee for Interfaith Relations, will also attend the two-day activity and speak to the young people on Tuesday evening.
