Diocesan Missions Sunday
The church is called to proclaim Jesus Christ, who was crucified, died and is risen: through him God bestows “new life” that is divine and eternal. This is the “Good News” which changes people and history, and which all people have a right to hear. We cannot be content when we consider the millions of our brother sand sister who don’t know Christ and the love of God yet. “We cannot but speak!” (Acts 4:20)
For over 50 years, the sisters of St. Joseph have labored in Brazil and the Sisters of mercy in Chile. On next weekend, May 20th and 21st, we call upon you to help with your prayers and sacrificial gift, so that they may continue to bring Christ into a world where darkness, despair and emptiness prevail.
