Holy Childhood Collection Boxes
The Holy Childhood Association is the Pope’s own missionary work for children. It seeks to help children around the
world find in the cross of Jesus victory over their sufferings, their crosses. As baptized Christians, we are each called to
help carry their crosses. Every penny contributed in Canada through schools and parishes this year will go to help
children in Kenya, South Africa, Uganda, Bolivia, Haiti, and India.
Halloween is rapidly approaching. We are encouraging all students to take Holy Childhood Alms Boxes with them on
their Halloween route. These boxes will then be returned to the school where the coins will be sorted, counted and a
cheque forwarded to Holy Childhood Association. Thank you for encouraging your child to carry an alms box with them
on their Halloween travels.
