Mission Sunday is 23rd October: next weekend we will celebrate World Mission Sunday. “You shall be my witnesses”

the link https://youtu.be/iVegzDGMzQc has a nice short analysis of Mission Sunday 2022 produced locally.  World Mission Sunday brings the entire global Church together in support of mission. Our Church is a global community. We depend on one another, on our shared prayer and solidarity.  Here in Ireland, we have a great tradition of supporting Missionaries – it is part of being Christian.  We all have an opportunity to contribute via our envelope collection next weekend, click on the Donate section on the website www.missio.ie or donate €4 by texting the word ‘Mission’ to 50300.

Through your generosity, the next generation of missionaries are educated.
