October 9th: National Day of Prayer

The National Day of Prayer 2015 will be celebrated on Friday 9th October. We invite schools and parishes to join us in prayer on the day for all children around the world. The 2014 celebration in Dublin was held in the parish of Rathmines where almost six hundred pupils from the parish and as far away as Carlow and Naas came together in prayer. The National Day of Prayer for children was first launched in 2007 and school support has grown year on year. The celebration, which is warmly supported by the Bishops of Ireland, teaches children the value of prayer during Mission Month with child friendly resources.

World Missions Ireland have a wealth of resources to support you in planning for October 9th, including: Teen Prayers and National Day of Prayer 2015 Resources.
