Children Helping Children

Missionary Children is the Catholic Church's official missionary charity for children. Under its original name of The Holy Childhood, Missionary Children has been active in Catholic schools for 170 years.

Part of the work of Missio Scotland is to connect children all over the world by enabling them to pray for one another and support one another in their needs. Missio's work also involves providing support for teachers in forming young people in their faith and helping them to be involved in mission.

Here you will find information and resources for the classroom and preparation for the sacraments.

Mission Month

October is Mission Month and marks the time of the year when the Church asks us to focus on our missionaries and those who live in mission countries and territories. We can do this materially, by fundraising for Missio Scotland, but more importantly by praying for our brothers and sisters in faith all around the world.


Here are some resources that we hope will help you to understand the importance of Mission Month and also the universality of our Church.


“Go out to the whole world and tell everyone what I have done.”

Missionary Children's Mass 1

“If you love one another, everyone will know you are my disciples.”

Missionary Children's Mass 2

“Go help everyone, everywhere to follow me.”
