The Primary School Wednesday Word is an outreach which shares Sunday's Gospel with all school families, in a unique way.
Each family usually receives the weekly handout consisting of high-quality Sunday Gospel leaflets and booklets. This is a weekly Gospel 'gift' from the school to the child to take home, which then becomes a 'gift' from the child to the whole family.
While schools are closed, The Wednesday Word are offering free-of-charge 'online' editions until things return to normal.
