The programme of a Katholikentag is primarily prepared by working groups set up for this purpose. These working groups work on a voluntary basis. In addition, the Catholic associations, diocesan councils, organisations and initiatives of the Central Committee of German Catholics (ZdK) also contribute to the programme. Other church groups can also apply on their own initiative with programme proposals.
The final programme will be finalised in spring 2022. Since October 2020, the motto for the 102nd Katholikentag has been fixed: leben teilen or sharing life. On this basis, as well as on the basis of the defined themes, the programme for the event in May 2022 will be drawn up in working groups. The applications and registrations of the various groups are sifted through and it is organised who may perform when, where and for how long. All this takes a lot of time and preparation.
