The Wednesday Word
A NATIONAL MISSION TO 21st CENTURY SCHOOL FAMILIES.

The Wednesday Word spreads the Gospel in a powerful new way - sowing seeds to school parents and their families.

Endorsements have already been received from the Vatican, the Bishops' Conference Committee for Evangelisation (CASE) and the Committee for Marriage and Family Life, etc.

The Wednesday Word mission aims to help all school families draw closer to God, to the Church and to each other. The Wednesday Word particularly seeks to reach the majority of parents (which statistics tell us are 80% in many schools) who do not take their baptised children to church or read the Bible together.

The primary school version of The Wednesday Word is a double-sided A4 leaflet which carries the Sunday Gospel into school family homes. The children receive the leaflet in school each week for them to take home with them to read with the rest of the family.

This way, the Word will be sent out (as in the Parable of the Sower and the Seed), creating a new opportunity for the Word to be present in the homes of school families connected to participating primary schools.

The weekly appearance of The Wednesday Word in the home is also designed to act as a regular invitation to the Eucharist throughout the time that the family is connected to the life of the school. This is a most excellent way to support school families and a wonderful new way to enhance the Home, School and Parish partnership.

"Without The Wednesday Word coming through school we would probably never have done this kind of thing……"
