‘We love the Day of Many colours and our Mission Together volunteer who delivers an assembly for us every year.’
Class teacher, Archdiocese of Southwark
The Day of Many Colours is our annual faith and fundraising event, celebrating the Universal Church and Mission Together’s work around the world. Accordingly the Day of Many Colours is celebrated on the Feast of St Peter and St Paul, the Church’s two great missionaries.
The day is based on the five colours of the Mission Rosary, in which each colour represents a different continent. These colours help us to remember children all around the world and encourage us to share God’s love with everyone. There are lots of different ways for schools to join in. Maybe you could…
- Hold a non-uniform day where children dress in the colours of the Mission Rosary.
- Host a day packed with fun activities.
- Have a colour-themed Bring and Buy sale.
- Spend some time in prayer: as well as reciting the Mission Rosary there are various engaging liturgies to accompany the Day of Many Colours, scroll down to download these resources.
In 2018 the Day of Many Colours is held on the feast of St Peter and Paul, Friday 29th June, although schools are welcome to select their own date at any time of year.
This year’s resources will be available to download April 2018.
You can order materials to support your Day of Many Colours: stickers, posters, prayer cards. Mission Rosaries are also available to order for a small donation of £1 per rosary to cover our costs.
