What’s on Locally…

MISSION MONTH Next Sunday is World Mission Sunday! Next Sunday, 21st October, Pope Francis is asking you and every Catholic worldwide to come together in celebration of World Mission Sunday. On this very special day every Church, in every parish across our globe will give what they can, no matter how little, towards the World Mission Sunday collection. Your contribution will be used to help spread faith, hope and love by supporting overseas missionaries, many of whom work in some of the world’s most impoverished and remote communities.
