In August, we pray with Pope Francis for small and medium-sized businesses which have been heavily hit by economic and social crises; may they find ways to continue operating and serving their communities.
‘God encourages us to develop the talents he gave us, and he has made our universe one of immense potential’.
– Pope Francis
Our focus for August
- Small businesses the world over are often the lifeblood of a community. Who could you support this month? Maybe your local independent coffee shop, farmer’s market or small retailer? When you support a small business, a real person does a happy dance!
- At Missio, we support communities in becoming self-sufficient. That’s why we assist projects that train and educate poor and vulnerable people, so they can ensure their own future. Read about our work in Kenya, Jamaica, and Nigeria.
- August is exam results time! We wish the very best for everyone waiting for results. We know this is an anxious time for many of you, and we are praying for you. This short film for students has some helpful tips for enduring the wait. Watch here>>
- The summer holidays can be a juggle for families! We have some simple, fun activities for children which can keep them occupied while helping them explore their faith. Find them here>>
