World Day for Children 2024

On 8 December 2023, Pope Francis announced that the first “World Day for Children” would be held in Rome on 25 – 26 May 2024. This is so that all children can hear and live out the Gospel enabling them to meet Christ.

As a Diocese, we want as many children as possible to be part of the experience as well as being able to celebrate the day in schools. To support with the celebrations, the Diocesan Department are working with Faith and Mission and the Youth Ministry Team to develop resources which can be used in schools and parishes, allowing children to encounter Christ in many ways.

As well as the resources, we will be launching an art competition to allow children to explore their understanding of God and his kingdom. We hope that we will be able to share the winning entries in future copies of this newsletter.
