Children’s Day of Mission Prayer is a mission-themed celebration for children, which happens on the second Friday in October each year. It helps children to develop an understanding that by being missionary and by living out Gospel values they will become kinder and more socially and globally responsible.
To help schools and parishes prepare, the Society of Missionary Children provides resources for the day. However, due to the challenges of COVID-19, this year we decided to go a step further and bring mission home. By bringing Children’s Day of Mission Prayer and Mission Month home, children can celebrate wherever they are – in their homes, schools, parishes or communities. It also lets overseas girls and boys, who are suffering even more because of the virus, know that children in Ireland are really thinking about them and want to help.
The Children’s Mission Month Resource is crammed with activities for every day of October! These resources allow children and their families to explore the power of prayer, how to help girls and boys in need, and how to become more socially and globally responsible.
