Mission Month of October:

Next Sunday is Mission Sunday, the annual worldwide Catholic celebration of mission in its fullest sense. Pope Francis describes mission “As a passion for Jesus and a passion for his people”.   Our financial and spiritual help enables missionaries to breathe faith, hope and charity into the lives of people who need it most. Sharing the message with those in developing countries is our Christian duty.   Our prayers on Mission Sunday go towards supporting missionaries and their mission projects where the Church is new, young or poor. A special collection will be taken up next Sunday in aid of our brothers and sisters currently on mission, allowing them to continue their work.

Moving Statues!!!

At the last meeting of the Parish Pastoral Council it was suggested to move the two external statues (Christ the King and Our Lady) at Newmarket Church to a suitable place on the grounds of Hugginstown Church. All suggestions will be very welcome before a decision is made. Please contact any member of the Parish Pastoral Council.
