Mission Appeal

Mission Appeal

Next week, August 7 & 8, our Parish will participate in the Mission Appeal Initiative organized by the Missionary Cooperative Plan of our Diocese.

This year we are happy to welcome the Comboni Missionary Sisters, an international missionary community founded in 1872 by Saint Daniel Comboni, the first Catholic Bishop of the immense Vicariate of Central Africa of his time.

The Comboni Missionary Sisters are particularly committed in Evangelization, empowering women through formal and informal education, to train community leaders, and to accompany Church and Societal efforts on advocacy, social justice and dialogue. They serve in 34 countries in the world.

Let us share with them the liveliness of our faith, our desire to serve, and the kindness of our financial solidarity for the mission projects!
