Next weekend there will be a retiring collection for the work of the Comboni Missionaries of the Sacred Heart.
We will welcome Fr Franco who will make the appeal in our three churches.
The Comboni Missionaries are an international Catholic organisation dedicated to ministering to the world’s poorest and most abandoned people, often working in unstable political climates, in the midst of extreme poverty. Despite these challenges, the missionaries are dedicated to their mission of serving God’s people. Sadly, in 2018, the number of missionaries killed worldwide was almost double the number who lost their lives in 2017. All were living and caring for people living in poverty, helping children and supporting development and faith projects.
