Mission Co-Op 2006

This year we again had missionaries visiting our parishes from all over the world including India, Ghana, the Philippines, Haiti, South Africa, Oaxaca, Mexico as well as mission-sending organizations such as Maryknoll, the Medical Missionaries of Mary, the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, the California Jesuit Missionaries, the Capuchin Franciscan Order, the Columban Fathers, and the Society of African Missions and others.

As of this writing, a total of $256,625.38 has been collected to support missions! Thank you sincerely for all that you do to support missions and mission activities in our diocese. Each year, this amount increases and we hear wonderful stories about how welcome missionaries feel when visiting our parishes.

We are now preparing for the Mission Co-Op in 2007. Missionaries visit our parishes during the summer months. They are an under-utilized resource and are often available to give talks or reflections on their work to parish groups or schools. If you would like to know who has been assigned to your parish and the date of their appeal, contact Sylvia at 408-983-0128.
