The Holy Father asks Missionary Childhood Association members to pray daily for the children in the Missions. All members are asked to offer one “Hail Mary” daily for children in the Missions.

Why is prayer important?

Children in Zambia saying GraceEven if you do not travel to the Missions, you can be a missionary by praying for your brothers and sisters all around the world. You can pray that children in other countries learn about Jesus and experience His love. You can also pray to God to help children who are suffering because they are poor, hungry or sick.
