World Mission Sunday

25th October 2017

Hard on the heels of the CAFOD fast day comes World Mission Sunday, our opportunity to contribute to the world-wide mission of the Church. Once again the people of St Joseph’s have responded magnificently. Already £269 has been contributed, and we expect many more envelopes to be handed in. Besides the special collection on this Sunday, many St Joseph’s people contribute to the missions through the Rex Box scheme. In 2015, the last year for which we have records, we gave £1,734 in this way. Our missionary giving funds, among other things, hospitals and schools in the mission territories. Did you know that the Catholic Church was the biggest provider of education, and of health care, in the world? She can continue to be so, if we are generous in our giving.
