October is Mission Month and 23rd October is Mission Sunday. There are approximately 1,500 Irish born missionaries working in more than 80 countries. They continue to spread the Gospel through their work, their deep commitment to the people they serve and their Faith. In essence, they lead by example and have helped to change, for the better, millions of lives all over the globe. The people in Killaloe Diocese have been urged to support missionaries working in some of the world’s poorest countries by donating during the Mission Sunday collection on the weekend of 15th/16th October. The theme for World Mission Sunday in Ireland this year 2016 is “Every Christian is a Missionary”. As we thank you for your wonderful generosity to the Missions over the years we invite you to please continue to help our young churches to share the gift of faith though your prayer and whatever financial assistance you can.
