2nd COLLECTION FOR WORLD MISSION SUNDAY, 22 OCTOBER 2023
For World Mission Day, Pope Francis has chosen the theme that takes inspiration from the story of the disciples of Emmaus, in the Gospel of Luke (Lk 24:1335):
Hearts on fire, feet on the move.
On this Sunday, we join our Holy Father in supporting his missions. Together, through our prayers and financial support, we bring the Lord’s mercy and concrete help to the most vulnerable communities in the Pope’s missions.

COME DISCOVER HOW THE WORD CREATES!
We grow in our relationship with God & one another through various activities: obstacle courses, escape room puzzles, team crafting & more.
Those wishing to take the Holy Eucharist to their sick loved ones must do so with a pyx.
They must also have the pyx burse/ purse hanging down their necks for reverently placing and taking the Eucharist.
Without the pyx and the pyx burse/purse we will be unable to give the Eucharist for people in this circumstance.
