‘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. The Day of Many Colours is celebrated on 29 June, the feast of St Peter and St Paul, the Church’s two great missionaries.
We have many resources to encourage schools to support this special day, they are all available to download below. The Day of Many Colours is based on the five colours of the Mission Rosary, in which each colour represents a different continent. These colours help children to remember how they are connected to other children all around the world, and encourages them to share God’s love with everyone through prayer and sharing.
Our 2018 Day of Many Colours assembly makes reference to the Football World Cup and highlights how sport – like the Church – draws people together to work as a team. Download our 2018 DOMC assembly below.
You can also 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.
