Leprosy Sunday

In Scotland we encourage churches across the country to hold a Leprosy Sunday during a service that suits them at any time of year. To help your church do so we produce a range or materials that vary year on year to meet the needs of churches who have used previous years packs and told us what they find particularly useful.

Leprosy Sunday 2020

Your Leprosy Sunday can make them all a thing of the past.

Diagnosed with leprosy at just 15 years old, she’s too afraid to even show her face.

For this girl and her family there is real fear about what her leprosy could mean for all of them.

Did you know?

World Leprosy Day is the major date in the leprosy calendar. Every year on the last Sunday in January (in some countries this is extended to cover the whole of the last week in January) the whole world has a chance to stop and consider those people who are affected by leprosy around the world.

It is an opportunity to celebrate the many stories of hope, transformation and restoration that have been achieved as The Leprosy Mission, and many other organisations, take steps towards achieving our ultimate goal of making leprosy a thing of the past.

It is also an opportunity to grapple with the scale of the problem that still exists around the world.
