Mission Together is the Catholic Church’s official children’s charity for overseas mission. It is the children’s branch of Missio. Previously known as Holy Childhood, Mission Together has been working in Catholic schools and parishes worldwide since 1843, encouraging children to pray, fundraise and become missionaries themselves – children helping children… 

Mission Together encourages children to play a leading role in the care of the spiritual and physical wellbeing of their brothers and sisters throughout the world.
