World Mission Sunday! Today Sunday 21st October: Today we come together for a truly incredible celebration of solidarity and unity within our Church – World Mission Sunday! Today, every single parish worldwide – and YOU – share wheat you can so the life-transforming work of missionaries overseas can continue. Today, through your prayers and contributions, you are full appreciating the dedication of our missionaries who live and work in communities that are struggling and often war-torn. World Mission Sunday is coordinated by World Missions Ireland originally known as the Pontifical Mission Societies and the Church’s official charity for overseas mission. It is part of a worldwide network of over 120 charities. Many of the international offices go by the name of ‘Missio’. World Missions Ireland and their fellow charities ensure that today’s contributions are distributed justly to where the need is greatest within our Universal Church. Today, your prayers and generosity are helping spread the peace and love of Christ. If you have already given, we send our heartfelt thanks. If you have yet to give, please dig a little deeper and share what you can. To donate €4 you can text the word ‘Mission’ to 50300 (Texts cost €4. World Missions Ireland will receive a minimum of €3.60). Or call us Monday to Friday on 014972035 to donate over the phone.
