MAD Sunday 2019

MADSunday ALL the resources – Enjoy

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.


  • For us, because it is what the Gospel message is about
  • Essentially just because we can – Let’s be honest, sometimes it feels good to just do something good for another
  • For a second just dare to dream what our home, community, city, island, world would be like if we all did something…


  • It’s great, inspirational at times, supporting and encouraging to share a bit of good news with others.
  • Let’s flood the internet & Social with GOOD News Stories!! Love is contagious!!

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!

Be creative, get involved, do something and share it with us/everyone!!

If you, your group, your school, your parish is interested in doing something there is loads of ideas and resources available –
