Youth FunDay in England and Wales (Friday 24th)

As with previous years since lockdown, we are pleased to welcome schools and other groups to the World Youth FunDay LIVESTREAM on the Friday before (Friday 24th November). An interactive live-streamed day with prayer, special guests, activities, and faith in action for all ages. Last year, 15, 000 young people joined us from classrooms across England and Wales and we hope everyone will be back for World Youth Funday 2023! You can Register for World Youth Funday here: WYD Website (

Youth Sunday Resources

In Lisbon this year, Pope Francis told 1.5 million young Catholics that “Jesus’ door is always open: Come and See!” This inspired the theme for World Youth Day celebrations in England and Wales for 2023. On a national scale, YMT has been heavily involved with World Youth Sunday resources for Primary and Secondary schools and parishes which are available here: WYD Website ( – we hope there’s something for everyone!

Please get in touch with any queries, or to share with us your World Youth Sunday/Funday News! We love to see your pictures when you tag us on Instagram and Facebook, so if you are using any of the World Youth Sunday resources, we’d love to see it!
