Pastoral Notes 30th September, 2018

October Collections
“In October each year the Church particularly encourages us to look outwards, towards our global family. Specifically, we are asked to do this through our support of CAFOD’s Family Fast Day (5th October) and Missio’s World Mission Sunday (21st October).
The Church’s mission to proclaim the gospel is helped by supporting Missio, through building and strengthening the Church overseas. By supporting CAFOD we are spreading the gospel through helping people in need overseas”. (From CAFOD/MISSIO leaflet).
A note of more personal interest to us might be of the Archdiocese of Gulu, in northern Uganda, where the Catholic population is 60% and has been steadfast ‘in working for peace and justice’.
