Mission Statement

The purpose of this office is to enable the members of our Archdiocese to realize their responsibility as missionaries bestowed on them in baptism to extend the mission begun by Jesus to the ends of the earth

Our office strives to assist young children in carrying out the mandate given to all by their baptism, that of sharing of talents, time, and treasure.

There are many examples in our Archdiocese of children responding to the needs of their children and doing so generously and spontaneously try find means of getting donations. Examples are many.

On Sunday, October 8, 2006 the children of St. Rose of Lima Franklin, Indiana decided upon doing a Holy Childhood walk going from door to door asking donations for the poor. See pictures here
