Holy Childhood

With its mission to bring children’s attention to the spiritual and material needs of children throughout the world, the Pontifical Society of the Holy Childhood Association was founded in Nancy, France in 1843. Pope Pius XI recognized this work as “pontifical” in his Encyclical Letter Rerum Ecclesiae on February 28, 1926.

Pope Pius XII in his Apostolic Letter Praeses Consilio (December 4, 1950) instituted the Annual Holy Childhood Day. It is also called Missionary Childhood Day and its purpose is stated thus: "Missionary Childhood Day is born with the purpose of having a specific day during the year in which children in all the countries of the world are involved in a special way."

Holy Childhood started by French Bishop Charles de Forbin-Janson who, "in order to face the tragic condition of the children of China, began to sensitize children in France, asking them for a prayer a day and a penny a month.” He wanted to educate children to the missionary spirit, to be interested in the needs of their peers especially in mission countries, with the offering of prayers and material aid.
