The Holy Childhood

Under its original name of Holy Childhood, Mission Together has been active in Catholic schools for one hundred and seventy years. As the Catholic Church’s official children's charity for overseas mission, we have enabled generations of children to follow the example of Jesus by feeding the hungry with food and hope, giving the thirsty water and faith, caring for the sick with medicine and prayers, and welcoming strangers by seeing Christ in others.

What makes Mission Together so special is the fact that it is universal. While children in England and Wales pray and fund raise for children overseas, children around the world are also praying and sharing for others in an amazing exchange of faith and friendship.

“Be concerned in a spiritual way for the education of children. Where young minds and hearts are shaped in love for the Lord and his Church, in the good, the true and the beautiful, and where children learn to be upright citizens.” Pope Francis

Safeguarding: Missio undertakes DBS Checks for its staff routinely working with children, young people and vulnerable adults. However, it remains the responsibility of host schools and other organisations to satisfy themselves of compliance with their relevant safeguarding policies and procedures. It is also remains the responsibility of the host organisation to ensure that Missio staff are accompanied by a member of staff checked at an enhanced level, including the Barred List for Children during their visits.
