MISSION SUNDAY RESOURCES

I wanted to draw to your attention a new website with free downloadable resources for Religious Education.  It’s called ‘Missio Ireland’ and aims to promote awareness of the work of missionaries overseas and in particular ‘World Mission Sunday’ which is on the 24th October this year.  The address is: https://missio.ie/I’ve attached some of the resources that it offers relating to October as Mission Month and World Mission Sunday.  This includes a poster, a Booklet with lovely reflections for each day of October, a Mission toolkit, and a Children’s Resource with a useful Activity Calendar.  I would encourage you to explore the website and the amazing and uplifting stories that are there that really bring home the importance of the work of missionaries.  They have a section just for schools. The daily reflections/prayer service could be used in an assembly or during class for prayer time. If any of your schools has an overseas project in place already, they could use photographs or videos of this to highlight the work of student/staff volunteers overseas and perhaps do a special assembly/display during the month of October.
