Since 2007 the Society of Missionary Children has celebrated the National Day of Prayer for Children on the second Friday of every October.

In 2007 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 to welcome as many as possible from around the country to come and pray for all children everywhere.

The prayer service will begin at 12 noon.

Of course, we will all be together in prayer on the same day even if you can’t come to Carlow.  The free resource book will help everyone to pray with us on the day!  It provides a “Let’s be Family” prayer service, a Mass and the Mission Rosary, all of which could be held in your local parish church, parish centre, school or individual classrooms.

However you celebrate the day, the most important part is encouraging children to pray together.

The resource book is available to download here agus tá sé anseo as gaeilge!

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