On Friday 8th October the National Day of Prayer for Children will be celebrated.

The 4th National Day of Prayer for Children is warmly supported by the Irish Bishops.

The Society is one of the four Pontifical Mission Societies and has had a presence in Ireland since 1853.

The day can be celebrated by children in your pairsh in numerous ways. For example, a special Mass within the school or parish, a small prayer service in each classroom or individual participation by children.

The most important thing is to encourage the children to pray.

The theme this year is Light and how we can shine the Light of Jesus around the world with the missionary spirituality of Children helping Children.
