The participants that come to Hearts Aflame pay their own way to the tune of approximately $495 per person. But every year we have administration, accommodation and travel costs for our speakers and priests that exceed the income we receive from registrations.
Hearts Aflame receives no permanent funding from the Church in New Zealand, the only source of funding we do receive comes from independent donations, and from year to year we have absolutely no guarantee that we will receive any money to be able to cover the financial shortfall. Hearts Aflame is run on a shoestring budget, and none of the volunteers who organise this event receive ANY financial remuneration for the hundreds of hours of time and effort they each put into this important apostolate.
With your financial support many more young adults can be formed in the faith and Hearts Aflame can be around for another 25 years!
