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.
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.
From 28 June 2021 for five days, we will be praying one decade of the Mission Rosary: focusing on one continent each day. You can join us, at home or at school with our Online Rosary videos. Click here to find them »
