Christmas eGreetings

Send an eCard featuring winning artwork from this year's Missionary Childhood Association's Christmas Artwork contest.  There are dozens of designs from which to choose, all drawn by elementary school-age children in Catholic schools, faith formation, or homeschool programs throughout the United States.

Please also consider helping a child in the pope's missions this Christmas season.

The Missionary Childhood Association reaches more than 3.5 million children and their families in some of the poorest parts of the world.
