The 99th German Catholic Day took place from May 28 to June 1, 2014 in Regensburg . The host was the Diocese of Regensburg , which is organizing the Catholic Day with the Central Committee of German Catholics (ZdK) . The motto was “Building bridges with Christ”. 
After 1849 and 1904, Regensburg was the meeting point of the lay meeting for the third time. A Catholic Day was last held in Bavaria in 1984. On November 19, 2011, the general assembly of the ZdK in Bad Godesberg decided, with a vote of 78.6 percent, to accept the invitation from then Bishop Gerhard Ludwig Müller to hold the 99th Catholic Day in 2014 in Regensburg.  The sponsoring association was founded in April 2012. The Katholikentagleitung was constituted directly after the 98th German Katholikentag in Mannheim in July 2012, chaired by Alois Glück .
