COVID 19 Mass guidelines for Young People


Covid 19 Resources

Celebrating Mass again

We are starting once again to celebrate Mass in our Schools and Parishes. The changes however can be confusing and sometimes scary for young people coming back to Mass after a long time.

Download the guidance below to make sure your celebration is safe and accessable and check out our new video which helps to make sense of the changes we’ll see.


Something for everyday


Extra-Ordo-Nary takes it’s name from the Diocesan Ordo. This document acts like a calendar for each diocese -helping people to know what season, feast day or celebration takes place on each day.

NDCYS have created a special version for young people and coupled each week of the year with a different theme – linked to the liturgical season – to help connect and inspire your prayer and liturgy.

Each week is also accompanied by a video on our YouTube channel that takes you through the important days in the week and brings the resource to life.
