Socktober is, first and foremost, a means through which schools and students can celebrate World Mission Month in October.
In the Socktober program, students are encouraged to “kick goals for kids in need” through the program, which features a six-module journey of learning and formation, packed with activities and resources, and a popular penalty shootout activity which can be held on a school’s mission day.
This year Catholic Mission’s Socktober program encourages students and their families across Australia to raise funds to support families in Ethiopia facing malnutrition and food insecurity. Our projects on the ground will help sustain and enrich the lives of vulnerable children who are in need of our support.
Bishop Paul encourages schools and parishes to be involved.
