Special SMA Collection this Weekend
We welcome Fr. Tom Curran SMA who will speak at all Masses this weekend.
The Society of African Missions – SMA – was founded in France in 1856 and when it was established in Ireland in 1878 it was the first exclusively missionary congregation to send out missionaries from Ireland. The main mission of the SMA is in Africa where members work in 17 countries. Today, there are about 900 members and about 270 seminarians preparing to be missionaries. The SMA asks for the support of prayers for the success of its missionary works. Our greatest needs are funds to educate our seminarians and to continue work among the poorest people on earth.
The Annual Mass will take place in Stamullen Cemetery on Friday night, 23rd June at 7:30 pm. The Committee look forward to seeing you there and the plots in their usual pristine condition.
Everyone is invited afterwards to the Parish Centre beside the Church for a cup of tea and a chat.
