Mission Groups Set to Visit Parishes During the Summer Mission Co-Op Program

Image hosted by Each year as part the annual mission co-op appeal, each parish in the diocese is assigned a missionary group or diocese to visit over a weekend during the months of July-September.

The mission co-op appeal is part of the activities of the Pontifical Mission Societies and has long been a tradition in our diocese. In addition to providing tangible support for their mission activities, parish communities have the opportunity to learn about the needs of others in the global community.

This year, groups will be visiting from the Philippines, Tanzania, Ecuador, Peru, Haiti, India, and Jamaica. Also visiting are many mission-sending societies and religious communities with missionaries assigned throughout the world.

In addition to speaking during the assigned weekend Masses, some missionary groups have mentioned that they would be available to speak at other parish activities and meetings such as youth groups, Just Faith groups, RCIA or religious education classes, and others.

To learn more about the group visiting your parish and the date of their appeal, or to contact them, you can call (408) 983-0128 and talk to Sylvia or call Linda at (408) 983-0158.
