MESSAGE FROM FR ANTHONY CHANTRY, NATIONAL DIRECTOR OF MISSIO
This year, World Mission Sunday falls on 18th October. On this day the whole Church unites in prayer for its missionary activity, and in collecting funds to support Catholic communities across the world living in situations of poverty and privation. The need is even greater this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, especially in countries with inadequate financial and medical resources All donations go to the Universal Solidarity Fund in order to meet the spiritual and material needs of peoples and Churches throughout the world. Thanks to all our great Red Box holders. Collection is not easy during this time. If you leave a Box, though, at the back of the church, we ‘ll collect it, then leave it for 72 hours, then count it.
We are all missionaries……………….
Here I am, Lord,
To share your love
with all people. Amen.
