Home Mission Sunday – second collection
This weekend 15th September 2019, we celebrate Home Mission Sunday – an opportunity to look closer to home as we grow Missionary Parishes and form Missionary Disciples. The Home Mission Office is a national organisation that helps the local Church engage in the vital mission of Evangelisation. This weekend, they ask for our prayers and our financial support through the second collection. Our prayers help them to be attentive to the Holy Spirit who directs their work and our donations to the second collection will enable them to help the local Church share the joy of the Gospel throughout England and Wales. In short, the second collection helps them to help us. For more information about the Home Mission Office or to donate online please visit www.homemission.org.uk
Please pray for the repose of the soul of Mariola Matyjasik and for her family and friends.
