click on the above picture to see an example of
the school version of 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
Endorsements have already been received from
the Vatican, the Bishops' Conference Department for Evangelisation
and Catechesis 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.
