Misson Groups Assigned to Parishes for Summer Appeal

Did you know?....Every summer missionaries come from throughout the world to visit our parishes as part of the annual Mission Co-Op program. The purpose of the Co-Op plan is two-fold: to raise awareness about the missionary work of the Church and the needs of our brothers and sisters across the globe and also to provide financial assistance through a weekend parish appeal to benefit mission groups and dioceses.

This year mission groups from the Congo, Ghana, Uganda, Sudan, the Philippines, Haiti, India, Ecuador, Peru and missionary-sending groups and dioceses will be coming to our parishes during the months of July through September. Assignment letters have just been sent out to all parishes.

These missionaries would love to personally meet you and tell their story. In addition to their appeal during weekend masses, they may also be available to meet with parish groups and schools during the time they are here. They also would appreciate your can provide them a cup of tea or coffee and a welcoming presence.

To find out the group assigned to your parish, click here.

Your parish office will have their contact information and the date that they will be at your parish. Please note that the only fund-raising activity approved by diocese will be the appeal during the masses.
