Women’s World Day of Prayer 2017 is on Friday 3rd March. It’s one of the biggest ecumenical prayer events worldwide, and each year, Christian women from a different country write a prayer service for a new theme.  This year’s theme , ‘Am I being unfair to you’ is about justice, and was inspired by the parable of the labourers in the vineyard. The order of service for 2017 was written by the women of the Philippines.  Read more

On December 8th 2015, Pope Francis initiated a Jubilee Year of Mercy. This special year concludes on 20 November 2016.

To mark this, Missio, the Pope’s official charity for overseas mission, and its children’s branch Mission Together, have produced Primary and Secondary versions of the assembly Our Mission; To Be Merciful. These assemblies focus on the key themes of the Jubilee, help explain mercy and mission, and emphasize the ongoing call to act mercifully.  Our Mission; To Be Merciful can be downloaded free from our respective websites: www.missio.org.uk and www.missiontogether.org.uk

Stations of the Cross from Godzdogz

The Dominican Students of Great Britain are producing videos for the stations of the Cross this Lent that could be a really great way of doing the stations in a different way, or an engaging resource to help young people put together their own set of stations. They can all be found on their youtube page here.

Why not get young people to help host Mary and Joseph on their journey to Bethlehem by running a travelling nativity. Let them be invited to homes, or let them travel around classrooms through Lent and include some prayers to help everyone get involved.
