Mary’s Meals: We began feeding 200 children in Malawi in 2002 and are now feeding 1,838,859 children every day in places of education. Our vision is that every hungry child receives a daily meal and that all who have more than they need, share with those who are in need. With our no frills policy, it costs with Mary's Meals €18.30 to give a child a meal every day for a full school year.
To raise funds and awareness of Mary's Meals, we are walking throughout Ireland. Walks are starting on 7 August from Kilkenny, Malin, Derry, Armagh, Dublin, and Limerick and are all arriving in Knock Co Mayo on 15 August (restriction permitting). Maybe you could get involved in Step by Step to Feed the Next Child. You are invited to visit our website www.marysmeals.ie For more information you can phone Fr Eamonn Kelly on 0879077985.

World Youth Day 2023
What is it?
World Youth Day (WYD) is the gathering of young people from all over the world with the Pope. It is also a pilgrimage, a celebration of youth, an expression of the universal Church and an intense moment of evangelisation for the youth world. Although its Catholic identity is clearly evident, WYD opens its doors to everyone, no matter how close to or distant from the Church they are.
It is celebrated at the diocesan level on Palm Sunday, and every two, three or four years as an international gathering in a city chosen by the Pope, with the presence of the Holy Father. It brings together millions of young people to celebrate their faith and sense of belonging to the Church.
Since its first edition in Rome in 1986, World Youth Day has proven to be a laboratory of faith, a place of birth for vocations to marriage and consecrated life, and an instrument for the evangelisation and transformation of the Church.
It aims to provide all participants with a universal Church experience, fostering a personal encounter with Jesus Christ. It is a new stimulus to the faith, hope and charity of the entire host country community. With young people as its protagonists, World Youth Day also seeks to promote peace, unity and fraternity among peoples and nations around the world.
