Since 2007 the Society of Missionary Children has celebrated the National Day of Prayer for Children on the 2nd Friday of every October.  This year we are celebrating on Friday, 13th October in the Cathedral of the Assumption, Carlow.  We are so excited about this as it is second first time having the event outside Dublin and we will be there to welcome as many as possible from around the country to come and pray for all children everywhere.  You are invited to bring some pupils to represent your school or parish at the Cathedral on the day.

Please remember to send your photographs and stories of how you celebrated the day to us here at Missionary Children by contacting
