My Prayer Journal and a “Gift of the Heart”

IOCC is pleased to announce that the third edition of the Children’s Prayer Journal is now available. The past two editions have proved successful as a tool for our young people to learn about children across the world and the importance of actively caring for our brothers and sisters in need. Titled “My Prayer Journal,” the colorful 32-page book encourages children in their prayer life and each month features a different country where IOCC is currently working. The booklet also contains Bible verses, quotes from the Church Fathers, excerpts from the Divine Liturgy, suggested prayers, and an Emergency Kits activity. If you would like to order an additional copy, please visit www.iocc.org/journal.
