An overview of a typical day in the life of a priest.
Welcome to our Catholic youth work Resources archive!
This section is primarily for parish youth workers and those involved in organising groups of young people. You may be a youth worker or leader, or perhaps just a regular young person who wants to start something in their school or parish. Whatever your situation, this Catholic youth work Resources archive is full of ideas for activities, games, praying etc. Use our filter tool below if you’re looking for something in particular. Please bear in mind that many of our resources can be used outside of the designated age range or theme, these are simply here to give you a rough guide!

When we finished we stuck a prayer on the jar which we can say before we take out a piece of paper.
Egg Toss is a fun race where you paint an egg and then race it down the hill by tossing it down as fast as possible without causing it to crack!
A drama put to music, showing the fall of humankind and how far God will go to get us back.
Testing reactions and helping to focus a group, in this game they have to both catch another finger and remain uncaught to win.
