World Mission Month
This year Catholic Mission's Church Appeal focuses on the poorest and most disadvantaged communities of Cambodia, where children are always the most vulnerable.
This appeal invites parishioners to reach out through their financial gifts and prayers to support the work of Sister Eulie Desacula from the Daughters of Charity, who proactively goes out to the children from disadvantaged communities and gives them an education they would otherwise never receive.

Papua New Guinea
The 2016 theme for this year’s Catholic Mission World Mission Appeal is inspired by the Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi, ‘Lord, make me an instrument of your peace’.
This appeal invites parishioners to reach out through their financial gifts and prayers to support the work of Mercy Works that, thanks to its partnership with Catholic Mission, is raising awareness of the issue of domestic violence in Papua New Guinea.

The 2016 schools appeal with the theme, 'Just as you did it to one of the least of these you did it to me', takes students into the lives of children in Cambodia who cannot go to school because their families live in poverty. The insightful stories about the work of Sister Eulie and her community will not only help educate students, but provide schools with practical options in this Year of Mercy, to live out Pope Francis' call to be the hands of mercy.
