Today is World Mission Sunday – Second Collection
World Mission Sunday supports missionaries who work alongside communities throughout the world that are poor or in need, regardless of their background or belief. By supporting Missio, the Pope’s charity for world mission, you will help missionaries like Sr Clara share the love of Christ with those most in need. Please pray for the mission of the Church throughout the World and give what you can. If you are a taxpayer, please use the Gift Aid envelopes provided. For more information, visit missio.org.uk. Thank you.
A very big thank you to all who supported the Bring & Buy coffee morning which raised £544 to be shared between the Poor Clares and Severn Hospice.
Extraordinary Month of Mission – Baptised and Sent
Pope Francis has declared that October 2019 will be a special month of prayer and action to strengthen and grow God’s mission through the Church. This month aims to encourage Catholics into a deeper relationship with Jesus through prayer; to look to, and learn from, the actions and sacrifices of our saints, martyrs and living missionaries; to financially support overseas mission, through Misso; and to rediscover and renew our understanding of overseas mission (missio ad gentes). For more information, please visit mission.org.uk/emm.
