Think Like a Missionary this October

"All the members of the Church are called to participate in this mission, for the Church is missionary by her very nature: she was born “to go forth”. - Pope Francis
What can your World Mission Sunday donation help accomplish in the Missions?
A gift of $25 is a month’s support for a mission catechist

An offering of $100 is a month’s help for a village mission. 
Always, your prayers are your most treasured gift to the Missions.
The life of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, patroness of the Missions offers Catholics insight into how they may fulfill their Baptismal responsibility to share the Good News of Jesus without ever “going to the Missions.” St. Thérèse dedicated her life to the Missions by offering her prayers and her personal sacrifices – her pain, her loneliness, her suffering – for missionaries and those whom they served.
