St Joseph's Catholic Primary and Nursery School, Pontefract.

  1. Catholic Life
  2. Wednesday Word



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.
