On the weekend of June 4-5, 2016 the faithful of the diocese are invited to contribute to the archdiocesan collection specifically for our mission efforts. You may have already received material about our Mission collection in your mail. This same information is available at your parishes.
The world we live in is ever changing and requires us to create new means to continue Christ’s mission in this reality. We need new people and new methods. Your support and contribution will help make this happen.
Our parishes need to be in the midst of the people; people who need to hear, see, and touch the reality of Jesus and encounter him. Pope Francis reminds us: “It is absolutely essential for the Church and for the credibility of her message that she herself live and testify to mercy.”
