MISSION SUNDAY Today all over the world, even in the poorest parishes, Catholics are being invited to extend their concern beyond parish, diocese or country, to pray God’s blessing on the work of sharing the Gospel message everywhere, and to support them financially as well as their means allow. Missionaries cross boundaries of many kinds - of geography, of language, of culture - to make Christ and his message known everywhere. Today, we ask God to bless them, and we offer whatever support we can to help them. If you can’t contribute you can donate €4 by texting the word ‘Mission’ to 50300. (Texts cost €4 and World Missions Ireland will receive a minimum of €3.60). Thank you
