World Mission Sunday was celebrated last Sunday, 23rd October and it is the Pope’s annual appeal to support overseas mission and missionaries. All offerings made become part of the Holy Father’s Universal Solidarity Fund supporting missionary activities in over 1,100 young dioceses: mostly in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
Thank you for supporting World Mission Sunday in whatever way you could at the weekend, and please remember this is more than an appeal for financial help. Missionaries take great strength in knowing that the faithful of the world are keeping them in their thoughts and prayers. You can still donate €4.00 by simply texting the word ‘Mission’ to 50300 or send a donation using the FREEPOST envelopes that are available in parish churches until the end of October.
