Children Helping Children
Thursday, April 16, 2015
This is the motto of the Missionary Childhood Association, one of the four Pontifical Mission Societies that the Mission Office represents. Its work is exclusively about the mission vocation of children. Not only are children encouraged to learn about other kids in the missions (and the missionaries who serve them) but they pray and sacrifice for each other. In this way children are empowered to share their gifts! This month we hear from Ms. Mary Coban, DRE at Divine Savior Parish in Norridge, and Fr. Avitus Kiiguta, pastor at St. John De LaSalle Parish in Chicago. Mary shares how her Religious Ed Program encourages the students to participate in the Missionary Childhood. Fr. Kiiguta shares his experience teaching children in Tanzania and Kenya who are also members. Click below to learn how you can encourage the children in your life to be powerful missionaries!
