Feast day, 1 October: Little Way Week is inspired by St Thérèse of Lisieux, patron of mission. As a child St Thérèse dreamed of being a missionary. With age she understood that very few of us are called to make big and radical gestures, but that through small, loving actions we too can deliver God’s love to the world.
Aged seven, Thérèse joined The Society of the Holy Childhood, known to us now as Mission Together. It was as a member of the Holy Childhood that Thérèse grew in faith and admiration for the work of the missionaries. Our five fact assembly teaches children about St Thérèse and encourages them to follow her ‘Little Way’.
Little Way Week 2023 begins on Monday 25 September and ends on Friday 29 September. The feast of St Thérèse of Lisieux falls on 1 October.St-Therese-of-Lisieux-Five-Fact-assembly-notes.pdf (5840 downloads) St-Therese-of-Lisieux-Five-Fact-assembly-slides.pptx (5526 downloads) REVISED FOR 2023: Saint Thérèse of Lisieux - Story and Prayer notes (723 downloads) REVISED FOR 2023: Saint Thérèse of Lisieux - Story and Prayer slides (433 downloads) NEW: Little Way Week EYS prayer (347 downloads) Little Flower activity & display (2160 downloads) Little Way Week Planner (2313 downloads) St Therese colour-in quotes (2133 downloads) Saint Thérèse of Lisieux - comprehension activity (1968 downloads)
