This year’s Catholic Mission Church Appeal highlights the life-saving work supported by Catholic Mission in Ghana, through programs designed to rescue babies and children who are vulnerable and foster their personal development for a brighter future.

Parishioners are invited to reach out through their financial gifts and prayers in support of the work of the Church in Ghana, to be present in the lives of those young people who come from a place of great need.

The parish resources have been created to help your parish conduct a successful Catholic Mission Church Appeal, and include the following:

  • Parish Kit – includes opening and closing prayers, parish bulletin notices, speakers' notes and ideas, and homily notes.
  • Poster – to be put up in your church prior to the appeal weekend.
  • Video – to be played during mass on the appeal weekend (if AV facilities are available).
  • Appeal Envelope – to be placed in the pews on the appeal weekend.
  • Summary Form – easy-to-use form to reconcile donations.

World Mission Month Appeal – You are mission

The 2018 Catholic Mission World Mission Appeal highlights the variety and scope of the work of Catholic Mission around the world. It also encourages the donors to recognise their important role in mission work – through prayer and donations towards life-giving projects.

Thanks to the help of Catholic Mission, children, communities and Church leaders have been supported through a variety of projects.

In the parish we share with donors an update on Shorti, Vandoosha and Sr Clara from India – a partnership that spans nearly ten years, and has benefitted so many young girls in need. We encourage donors to consider how they can be a part of mission, through both prayer and action today.
