Sundays 21st and 28th October 2018
Sunday 21st October: Today is World Mission Sunday! Today we come together for a truly incredible celebration of solidarity and unity within our Church – World Mission Sunday! Today, every single parish worldwide – and YOU – share what you can so the life-transforming work of missionaries overseas can continue. Today, through your prayers and contributions, you are fully appreciating the dedication of our missionaries who live and work in communities that are struggling and often war-torn. World Mission Sunday is coordinated by ‘World Missions Ireland’, originally known as the Pontifical Mission Societies and the Church’s official charity for overseas mission. It is part of a worldwide network of over 120 charities. Many of the international offices go by the name ‘Missio’. World Missions Ireland and their fellow charities ensure that today’s contributions are distributed justly to where the need is greatest within our Universal Church. Today, your prayers and generosity are helping spread the peace and love of Christ. If you have already given, we send our heartfelt thanks. If you have yet to give, please dig a little deeper and share what you can.
