Day of Many Colours

The Day of Many Colours is a day for children to celebrate their belonging to God’s Universal Family. Based on the five colours of the Mission Rosary, this special day encourages children to unite in prayer with their sisters and brothers in Africa; the Americas; Europe; Oceania; and Asia. The Day of Many Colours is not exclusive to England and Wales. Similar days are held around the world, each sharing the same aim: to develop in children a missionary spirit of attention towards others, through prayer, charity, and action.

Your Day of Many Colours can coincide with the feast St Peter and St Paul on 29th June or you can select your own day to celebrate. Scroll down to download free resources. You can order posters and stickers to support your Day of Many Colours. Mission Rosaries are also available to order for a donation of £1 per rosary.

To discover more about Mission Together’s work overseas, pupils can also explore our Virtual World Map. The Virtual Map is a fun way to discover how children around the world share their faith, time, and talents to be missionaries of God’s love.
