WORLD MISSION SUNDAY, 18th October 2015

Next Sunday, the Holy Father invites all Catholics to contribute to a special collection for Misio, his official charity for overseas mission. World Mission Sunday is a special day that unites Catholics all over the world in prayer, celebration and  care for the mission of the Church.  Thanks to your support, the Catholic Church is growing and many parishes can now take care of themselves. However, 40% of the Universal Church is still too new, young or poor to survive without our  help, just like the Church in Mongolia.  By supporting World Mission Sunday you are directly helping missionaries in over 1,000 dioceses bring hope and new life to people who do not yet know that they are precious in the eyes and heart of God.  You will be able to Gift Aid all
donations by using the envelopes provided by Missio, which are at the back of the church.
