Archdiocesan Information: Share the Mission: Special Collection June 6-7
In the Church when we speak of missionary work people often think this requires going to a foreign country to proclaim Christ. While this is part of our mission to spread the Good News of Christ’s birth, death and resurrection, it is only part of the story. We are all missionaries and the mission field is right here, right now!
On the weekend of June 6 and 7 we are inviting you to take part in the annual diocesan collection, Share the Mission.
We are called to help each other as communities to become missionary disciples! We do this by supporting one another on all levels: in our actions, through our prayers, and in our financial giving.
This special collection supports missionary action on both a diocesan and parish level. Twenty percent of the total donations raised by your parish will be returned to the parish to be used for missionary work at the local level.
For more information contact Cathy Driscoll Cainen at (902) 429-9800 x308 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
