Pray in May - Mary's Meals

Mary's Meals, named after Mary the Mother of Jesus, has been built on a foundation of prayer and the many little acts of love from those who support them.  

"Throughout the month of May, we are asking churches and people of faith to pray with us to bless Mary's Meals, as we recognise the special place of prayer in our work"

Throughout the month of May 2021 individuals, churches and faith groups are invited to pray with Mary's Meals, that their work continues to flourish and grow, and that more children throughout the world will see their lives transformed by receiving a daily meal in a place of education.

To support this initiative, Mary's Meals will provide a variety of resources which including: prayer guides, devotions and faith-based gift cards. These resources can be found below.
