‘Socking It’ to Poverty
Students across the Cairns Diocese are ‘socking it’ to poverty this Socktober 2020.
Students are pulling up their socks and digging deep for a good cause this October with 12 schools across the Cairns Diocese participating in Socktober, an initiative of Catholic Mission.
“Socktober is Catholic Mission’s new school’s engagement platform and invites schools to engage with mission encouraging a learning mind, an open heart and hands for action.”
“Children experience how their brothers and sisters in Ghana play the game of soccer with a recycled ‘Sockball’, learn about life in Ghana and are moved to action. Socktober provides children with the opportunity to lead in mission by sharing their story of support with their family and friends, listening to the Pope’s call to ‘rise up from the couch with your boots laced, and turn your hands into signs of love’.”
Anna Jimenez, Catholic Mission Director, Diocese of Cairns.
