Catholic Mission Schools Resources - Socktober
This year, students across Australia are encouraged to not only learn about Ghana and the work of the Church there, but to do something extraordinary for mission through their fundraising, advocacy and prayers.
Catholic Mission Schools Resources have been created specifically to support children's learning and understanding of mission. There are resources aimed for Primary and Secondary students, resources for catechists, and advocacy and liturgy resources available.

In Ghana there are many children who go to school, hang out with friends and family, and do fun things like sport. Distressingly, some children, especially those with a disability, struggle to have their basic needs met, such as food, clean water, healthcare and education.
Thankfully, the Nazareth Home for God’s Children in the Diocese of Yendi in Ghana is a haven where children of all ages are loved and cared for unconditionally. Sister Stan Therese Mumuni, founder and director, has dedicated the last ten years to running the home, which currently cares for 78 boys and girls, providing them with safety, nutritious meals, healthcare and education.
Sister Stan ensures the children receive quality education so that they may one day gain employment and provide for themselves. Her dream is that they will return to their home community and show how the love and support of the Church has empowered them to develop and reach their goals.
The Nazareth Home for God’s Children is one of the many critical initiatives established by the Catholic Church in Ghana to develop and nourish the country’s most vulnerable young people. Without the tireless efforts of Sister Stan and other religious and lay missionaries around the country, many children will lose out on all that life has to offer.
The survival of these programs and the quality of life these children and young people experience rely so much on the support your school community can provide today.
