SCCS Enrolled in Papal Missionary Society
On Friday, October 3rd, the students of SCCS participated in the annual Missionary Childhood Association Assembly which is celebrated near the feast of St. Teresa of the Child Jesus, patron saint of missionaries.
” The Missionary Childhood Association is one of the four Pontifical Mission Societies and is active in 110 countries throughout the world. The goal of MCA is to gather prayers and financial support for children in mission countries, while at the same time animating a missionary spirit and inviting all children to help spread the Good News of Jesus to other children around the world. MCA endeavors to attain its ends through the united efforts of all Catholic children who are taught to recognize that sensitivity to others is an essential dimension of Christianity. MCA’s motto of “Children Helping Children” continues to guide the program today.
MCA’s membership is made up of students from Catholic elementary schools, parish schools of religion, and home-schooled children. These students take part in many activities throughout the year that foster their education and awareness of the missionary nature of the Church.”
Mrs Narynski, Vice Principal, couldn’t say enough positive things about the students who prepared the assembly. “The formal presentation was led by the Gr.7 Class, all of whom demonstrated wonderful leadership!”
