“Mission Sunday”.

The theme for this years Mission Sunday is ‘Reach out and Spread the Joy’. We all have the privilege of sharing God’s love and words with those who have not yet heard Him. Pope Francis is an enthusiastic ‘promoter’ of this theme and is seeking to lead all of us in a joyful expression of our individual and unique missionary spirit. The Irish Missionaries need our spiritual and financial help. We have some 1,200 men and women working in all corners of the world, each playing his or her part on the missionary journey.   The Annual Collection in aid of the “Missions” will be held after all Masses this weekend 21st./22nd. October.
