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.
