Prayer and Liturgy

Socktober is, first and foremost, a means through which schools and students can celebrate World Mission Month in October, and an important component of this celebration is a liturgy or Mission Mass to reflect on the efforts of mission partners around the world and pray for them and the communities they serve.

Prayer is a great source of life and communication, keeping us open to the mystery of God’s loving grace and presence which envelop each moment of our lives. Prayer also helps to express our concerns for those who are affected by poverty. It is an important means, in faith, to support our brothers and sisters who not only need material support but also spiritual support to live life to the full.  

Mass and liturgy materials are available here, in downloadable Word, PDF, and PowerPoint formats. These can be adapted to suit your school and context. There will also be music files and sheet music available to accompany liturgy or moments of reflection. You will see there are many ways for students to participate in the mass and liturgy through readings, procession of symbols, and singing along with the music.
