Flame 2023 – The UK’s Largest Catholic Youth Conference

On 4 March 10,000 young people will fill OVO Arena Wembley, for an inspiring day of prayer, adoration, catechesis, reflection, celebration and praise.

The theme of Flame 2023 – which is exactly 150 days before World Youth Day in Lisbon – takes the WYD scripture “Mary arose and went with haste” and crystallises it into the theme, “Rise Up!”.

Rise up after the pandemic, Rise up as young Catholics, Rise up – as Mary did – for the surprising and beautiful adventure that is our Catholic faith.
