Mission Sunday - 21st October

posted Oct 18, 2012, 4:02 AM by Bohernabreena Parish Administrator   [ updated Oct 18, 2012, 4:02 AM ]

Sunday 21st October is Mission Sunday. The usual Share collection will be replaced by our annual Mission appeal. Every year the needs of the Catholic Church in the Missions grow - as new dioceses are formed, as areas devastated by war or natural disaster are rebuilt. That is why the involvement and commitment of Catholics from around the world is so urgently needed. The Mission Sunday collection is made available, in its entirety, to be distributed to as many as 1,100 young Churches who are supported by the generosity of Churches that are better off. The theme for World Mission Sunday in Ireland this year is Growing in Communion.  On Mission Sunday, in a special way, we celebrate the work our 1,700 missionaries and all missionaries throughout the world. We thank God for them, for all who support them in our own country and for our growing in communion with them.
