Hearts on Fire, Feet on the Move” (Luke 24: 13-35)

This weekend parishes worldwide celebrate World Mission Sunday. The
kindness shown will help overseas missionaries to continue to share the love of God with some of the world’s most marginalised and vulnerable people.
Thank you for supporting in whatever way you can, and please remember it is more than an appeal for financial help. Missionaries also need spiritual support. On World Mission Sunday missionaries take great strength in knowing that the faithful of the world are keeping them in their thoughts and prayers. World Mission Sunday is the Holy Father’s annual appeal for spiritual and financial support so that the lifegiving work of overseas mission and missionaries can continue. The generosity offered will be used to support missionary activities in over 1,100 struggling dioceses; mostly in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. The second collection at all Masses this weekend will be donated to the Church’s missionary activity. You can also donate €4.00 by texting the word ‘Mission’ to 50300. Alternatively donate at www.missio.ie or call Missio Ireland on 01 497 2035.
