The Wednesday Word is an accessible and attractive double-sided A4 leaflet which carries the Sunday Gospel into school family homes every week. An increasingly popular way to share the Gospel with parents and families, its mission is to help all school families draw closer to God, to the Church and to each other.
The Wednesday Word gives a simple message about faith and everyday life and created positive time together that helped our children relate the Gospels to their own life and situations.
Subscribing schools provide pupils with a Wednesday Word leaflet which they are then asked to take home and read with the rest of the family. Fun and engaging activities are also included to help children and parents unpack the Gospel further, together.
The Wednesday Word particularly seeks to reach parents who do not take their children to church or read the Bible together. It is also designed to act as a regular invitation to the Eucharist throughout the time that the family is connected to the life of the school.
