Welcome to Catholic Mission's World Mission Month Schools Resources for 2019.
Pope Francis has declared this an Extraordinary Missionary Month calling for a reawakening of missionary vitality across the world.
Whatever you do for mission this World Mission Month will be contributing to this call. Join us!
Explore Ghana, the country, the people and the life challenges faced by many children and young people. Learn how the local Church is responding, fulfilling its mission to build a better future for children and families on the margins.
Get involved in Ghana! With new knowledge we know how to respond in the best way as an individual, class group or school.
And consider ‘What’s My Mission?’ Pope Francis is urging each of us to reflect on our mission.
‘This missionary mandate touches us personally: I am a mission, always; you are a mission, always…. As far as God’s love is concerned, no one is useless or insignificant. Each of us is a mission to the world, for each of us is the fruit of God’s love.’
And in his World Mission Day message he declares:
‘Faith in Jesus Christ enables us to see all things in their proper perspective, as we view the world with God’s own eyes and heart.’ As we begin to explore Ghana let’s carry this vision of the world with us.
