MISSIONARY SOCIETY OF ST COLUMBAN APPEAL: Sunday, 25th November
Post date: Nov 23, 2018 12:14:20 PM
This Sunday we welcome Fr Gerry Markey SSC who will be celebrating our Sunday Masses, and making an appeal on behalf of the Society of St Columban which is an organization working in fifteen countries with a special commitment to Asia and Latin America. The primary aim of the Columbans is inculturation of the Gospel in cross cultural environments. They engage in reconciliation, dialogue and building relationships between peoples of different faiths, cultures and ideologies. Columban missionary work of evangelisation includes outreach to poor and marginalized peoples, building bridges between faiths and cultures and supporting emerging local churches. At the heart of their work is the call to help people become fully human, to help establish a world of peace with justice and care for the integrity of creation in solidarity with the poor. Fr Gerry has worked on Mission around the globe in the Philippines, on the Mexican border in Cuidad Juarez and latterly in Chile.
Fr Gerry sends his grateful thanks for your kind donation of £450.66 from last weeks appeal.
