Each year Mission Together encourages schools to host a Day of Many Colours. This special day of celebration aims to develop in children a missionary spirit of attention towards others, through prayer, charity, and action. It also provides a joyfully opportunity for children to celebrate their special place within God’s Universal Family.
You inspired us!
We know teachers and schools have significant demands on their time and resources. So it’s always inspiring for us to see schools across England and Wales continue to support our Day of Many Colours and use to great effect the many classroom resources available on our website.
Many of you posted tweets from their day, sharing news of special Liturgical Prayers, DOMC learning activities, fun celebrations, and fundraising efforts.
In Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Primary, Durham, pupils laid out a giant Mission Rosary on the school hall floor, whilst others gave a rousing rendition of He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands, as pupils prayed for their brothers and sisters around the world. We loved your creativity and your fantastic singing, everyone!
At Sacred Heart Primary, Birmingham, pupils raised a fantastic £180 to buy their own Mission Rosaries so they could pray for children on every continent during their Day of Many Colours. What a wonderful way to connect with our global family – we are so touched by your hearts of faith!
And in St Paulinus Primary, Cleveland, pupils used our Mission Together Virtual Map to learn about children around the world who also pray and share to help others through Mission Together.
We love that you took the time to learn and pray about God’s global family!
A huge ‘thank you’!
We’re very grateful to all who support our Day of Many Colours. All the money you raise for Mission Together goes to Missio’s overseas children’s projects.
That means your prayers and donations go to the 20,000 plus children we help around the world, offering a safe place to live, nourishing food, opportunities to learn, vital medical care and so much more. And your prayers let them know they’re not alone – that there are always people who care about them.
