ST GERARD'S APOSTOLIC WORKERS


will be holding a church door collection on the 30th and 31st October. As a result of the Covid 19 pandemic, funding for the missions has been severely affected, but there has been a substantial increase in need. Over the past year the majority of requests for support have focused on food and  water, medical supplies and educational resources.

It is anticipated that this will remain the case for the foreseeable future.

Envelopes will be available at the back of the church, for anyone who would like to Gift aid their donation, from this weekend.                                  



SYNOD: AN OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCE                            

This weekend Pope Francis opens the pathway for a Universal Synod that will take place in Rome in 2023. This Synod will be a gathering that takes place after all the local Churches have shared their contribution on the experience of journeying together in Communion, Participation and Mission.     




             

In our Diocese, of Down and Connor, we will have a time of listening and sharing prayerfully through Advent. During this time there will be an opportunity for you to share your experience of what it is like to be a part of our Church today.                     


WORLD MISSION SUNDAY—24TH OCTOBER 2021

This years message is “We Cannot Remain Silent– we cannot but speak about what we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:20)

It is a message of hope: Jesus Christ is risen and we cannot keep his love, compassion and mercy to ourselves. It also challenges us to stand up and speak out on   behalf of those whose voices are too small to be heard.


For them,  we cannot remain silent.  October and World Mission Sunday is a time for the faithful of the world to show their appreciation towards the work of overseas missionaries. The Generosity offered will be used to support missionary activities in over 1,100 struggling     dioceses; mostly in Africa, Asia and Latin America. You can help right now.

Please donate 4 euros by texting the word “Mission” to 50300.


Alternatively donate at www.missio.ie or call Missio Ireland on 01 497 2035.
