World Mission Sunday is on the 18th October this year.

It is celebrated in every church, in every parish, in every diocese, in every country where the Church is present throughout the world.

It is an opportunity for every Catholic to show solidarity with their brothers and sisters from Coatbridge to the rainforests of Cameroon, from Paisley to the mountains of Peru, from Falkirk to the islands of Fiji. 

As well as praying for one another during the month of October, every Catholic tries to donate something large or small, whatever they can, to support those in our Church family who are in need.

Your donation will go to help others in many different countries but in the campaign this year we want to draw attention to the people in the high Andes mountains in Peru.

With your help, we want to help the people in the diocese of Sicuani with two projects. 

The first is to build a parish house in the village of Llusco so that there can be a resident priest and the people can have Mass and the sacraments. The house will also be a centre where the community can come together to share food and life.

The second project we can help is to fund is a feeding programme for disabled children in the Sicuani area which is run by the diocese.

We ask you to please be as generous as ever by clicking the donate button and choosing Mission Sunday.

Fr. Pat Hennessy

 

is a priest of the Diocese of Motherwell who also spent many years in a remote parish in Peru.

Fr. Pat gave a very interesting interview to Missio Scotland which you can read here.

He paints a very clear picture of what it means to serve some of the poorest people in the world and why supporting Missio brings love and hope to our brothers and sisters.

Missionaries    #WeAreStillHere

Covid-19 Pandemic

All of us have seen how the whole world has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Often, though, we do not hear so much about how it is impacting people in Africa, South America, the Caribbean, south-east Asia and the Pacific Islands. In many of these places, missionaries and local Catholic priests, religious sisters and parish communities are the only source of hope and help.

 

The video above sends out a clear message: they are still there for the people.

Please keep them in your prayers.

One country that is being very badly affected is Peru and during the Mission Month of October, Missio Scotland will focus on our brothers and sisters there.

We are the Pope’s official charity for overseas mission. Missio Scotland brings the hope of the Gospel where there is turmoil, poverty or uncertainty, and aid to where the Church is new, young or poor.

Missio Scotland empowers local people to form and sustain communities of faith. 

We also help to train and nurture future leaders so that the vital work of the Church can continue to take place.
