Parish of the Immaculate Conception and St. Killian Clondalkin
Following on from the success of MAD Sunday over the last 3 years – We are asking everyone to get involved and help us this by taking part in and promoting ‘MAD Sunday 2019’ – 27th Oct 2019 – Make a difference, Be the difference & Share the good news!! – Do one good thing that day for another & share it with us!! #MADSunday
Make a Difference (MAD) Sunday is an open invitation to everyone – seriously everyone, anywhere, any age, any background, any religion. This beautifully simple initiative hopes encourage people to consciously do at least 1 good thing that day (or maybe 1 thing each day that week) to help another and then share it.
It’s a day on which we are encouraging young and not so young, groups or individuals, parents & children, clubs & societies, families & friends, politicians & teachers,… to look out for others and make a small difference in their home, community, school, parish, etc.. To consciously do one simple act of kindness and then share it with us all through social media using the #MADSUNDAY
Come together as a group to plan & do something or do something on your own. Big or small – it’s up to you!
If you, your group, your school, your parish is interested in doing something there is loads of ideas and resources available –
