Next weekend our parish will celebrate World Mission Sunday. It's a way, chosen by Pope Francis, that gives support to those suffering within our Church family. On the 20th, every single parish world-wide will give what they can. It will be used to support overseas missionaries, many of whom work in some of the world's most impoverished communities. Next week, if you can, please be extra generous during Mass. You can donate €4 right now, by texting the word 'Mission' to 50300. Texts cost €4. World Mission Ireland will receive a minimum of €3.60. Service Provider: LikeCharity. Helpline: 076 6805278. You can also donate online at www.wmi.ie/donate. World Missions Ireland, the Church's charity for overseas mission, is responsible for the coordination of Mission Month. Go to www.wmi.ie to learn more.
