Mission Sunday Appeal- THIS WEEKEND- 17/18th October

Bucket collection at the church door at all Masses THIS WEEKEND

Mission Sunday Appeal – The joy of the Lord is our Strength!   Nehemiah 8:1

On 18 October we will celebrate World Mission Sunday  – a special day, called by Pope Francis, when we are called to pray and offer material support to the work of mission around the world.   This year we are invited to partner with the Church in Cambodia, which is reaching out to those who have been affected by disability and giving them hope through the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and practical support to live a fulfilling life.


Chen was just 16 years old when he lost both his legs in a landmine accident. Knowing that his life would never be the same, he felt hopeless, until he and his family were approached by the Arrupe Centre. Led by Bishop Enrique Figaredo Alvargonzalez, the Arrupe Centre provides children like Chen with support and opportunities they may not access otherwise.  You are warmly invited to partner with the Church in Cambodia through this year’s Church Appeal.

#WeAreStillhere Global Mission

Pope Francis has highlighted his passion for the Pontifical Mission Societies, known in Australia as Catholic Mission, recognising mission is at the heart and identity of the Church, and the worldwide network reflects the rich variety of “people with a thousand faces”.These faces are featured in an inspirational video that connects more than 30 missionaries based in over 25 different countries speaking a variety of languages. Produced by Catholic Mission, the global awareness campaign, launched as part of World Mission Month, is being shared with Pontifical Mission Societies around the world.Bishop “Kike”, a familiar face to supporters of Catholic Mission’s programs, and a tireless advocate for people with disability in Cambodia, also features in the video.Inspired by the words of the Holy Father, you are invited into the family of missionaries around the world who say: we are still here. #catholicmission #zusammenhalten #seguimosaqui #wearestillhere
