This is Mission Month! Will you join us to share God’s love with those near and far?
World Mission Sunday is celebrated in every Catholic community in the world. It’s a moment of grace to express solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Christ who are living in situations of poverty, violence and oppression. Every Parish, school and family is invited to come and share this important moment.
Our mission in Malawi
This year you’ll see Sister Nilcéia on our posters, and on the Autumn edition of Mission Today. Sister Nilcéia is a Brazilian missionary working in a health clinic in a remote area of Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world. She has responded to God’s call by devoting her life to the practical care and spiritual nourishment of the most vulnerable.
‘Our small clinic is an oasis of hope. Despite the challenges, we persevere in this work because we love God and we love his people. I believe in the goodness of God and we serve as Jesus did. But sometimes, the darkness seems very dark. We share all that we have but sometimes it is not enough to save a sick child. The need here in Malawi is great but the Lord is faithful, and we continue to serve. We take courage from knowing you are with us in this mission. Together we are one family, one faith, one Church, and together we share love through good actions’.
Here I am, send me!
