Family Life International NZ holds various prolife, pro-family events throughout New Zealand each year.
Generally held in Auckland and Wellington, these events are usually, steeped in prayer as we recognise the spiritual nature of building a culture of life.
Events include prayer vigils, 40 Days for Life, Masses, conferences, seminars, LifeFests and other events. Our conferences and seminars feature interesting, knowledgeable and powerful speakers from all over the world. We endorse the annual National March for Life held in Wellington, having founded the event in 2017 to commemorate the tragic passing of the Contraception, Sterilisation and Abortion Act, 1977.
Come along to any of the events below, make new friends and help rebuild a culture of life in New Zealand!
