In the Year of Oscar Romero we commemorate the centenary of the birth of Blessed Oscar Romero, the martyred Archbishop of El Salvador. June’s theme is ‘Pray and Share’ and we are celebrating the work of Mission Together, the Children’s branch of the Pope’s charity, Mission. Blessed Oscar Romero was the National Director of Mission in El Salvador.
Our worship opened with the following prayer.
Loving God, today is our Day of Many Colours, when we remember children around the world who are living in poverty. We know that you and your Son, Jesus, taught us to love all people, especially those who need our help. May we do this every day, so that all children might live happy lives, full of faith, hope, and love.
