CRS Little Flower Challenge

You have the opportunity to take part in a partnership between NCCL and Catholic Relief Services to battle the ongoing water crisis around the world!

Through your registration, you will gain access to the free resources that will help you to plan and facilitate educational opportunities to challenge your students to think globally and to act as missionary disciples!

This October, CRS is challenging you to begin a journey to spread love and solidarity through Praying, Learning, Acting, and Giving. By participating in the CRS Little Flower Challenge from Respect Life Month until the beginning of Lent, you will bring your students into greater solidarity with our brothers and sisters around the world who struggle for clean water each day.

Saint Therese of Lisieux, the “Little Flower,” is the patron saint of international missions, not because she traveled to far-off destinations, but because of the special love, prayers and letters she gave in support of the work of Christ overseas. Her story will inspire children to pray and make small sacrifices— the “little things” — to bring about meaningful change in the world.
