WHAT IS THE HOLY CHILDHOOD ASSOCIATION (HCA)?

CHILDREN HELPING CHILDREN

The Holy Childhood Association was founded by Father Charles Forbin-Janson, in 1843. Pauline Jaricot suggested he ask children to help children around the world.

Today more than 150 years have past and HCA continues to depend solely on the prayers and donations of school age children to provide for the poor children in the mission countries. Through knowledge and motivation our young people respond generously and bring the gift of hope to their peers in Asia, Africa, the Pacific Islands and Latin America, by helping them to know Christ and experience His love and care.
 

HOW CAN I LEARN MORE ABOUT HCA?


Lunch Program in the Phillipines.

Contact Sister Pauline, she is available to visit the schools/ religious education programs and give a mission presentation. (Archbishop Dolan, Sr. Joan Curtin and Dr. McNiff strongly encourage this) The presentation consists of slides, and a running commentary adapted to the age of the students, concerning a mission country Sister has visited. The Principals/Directors of Religious Education are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity for the students to learn that they too are missionaries and indeed do BRING THE GOOD NEWS TO THE ENDS OF THE EARTH.

Please be advised that there is not any fee requested for a Presentation.

The Mission Education Committee is a group of returned missionaries who visit the High Schools and share their mission stories and experiences.

Contact the archdiocesan office to learn about membership in HCA and to order Mite Boxes or Coin Cards for Advent and Lent.  Collecting and donating money may be done at any time during the school year.  Please remember that all money collected in materials obtained from this office MUST BE COLLECTED SOLELY FOR HCA and MUST BE SENT TO THE ARCHDIOCESAN OFFICE. It is not to be used for any other charity.

HOW DOES THE MONEY I CONTRIBUTE TO HCA
HELP THE POOR CHILDREN IN THE MISSION COUNTRIES?

                        
The money is sent to missionaries to spread the Good News of Jesus and His love for the poor children in the mission countries. It is used to build schools, hospitals and orphanages, to develop water projects and to provide medical care, food, and clothing.
