Resources for Parishes

What we do for our brother, we are doing it for God. Because God is invisible, but we see Him in our brothers and sisters who are in need.

Bringing hope for families in need in Ethiopia.

Thank you for choosing to support the work of Catholic Mission this year, and for sharing the important and vital work of missionaries around the world with your parishioners.

This year, we invite you to partner with the essential work of the community and Church in Ethiopia, as they look to establish a goat rearing centre to provide nutritious milk for families in most need, to help reverse and prevent health problems like malnutrition.

Please access and download the following resources to help you run a successful Catholic Mission Church Appeal.

  • Appeal Overview – An easy guide to help run a successful appeal in your parish.
  • Appeal Video – A powerful story of the missionary work of the Church reaching out to those in need in Ethiopia. We encourage you to play this for your parishioners at each Mass.
  • Speakers’ Notes – To assist you with key themes and messages
  • Parish Bulletins – To be placed in your parish newsletter and social media in the weeks before, during and after the appeal.
  • Homily & Prayers Notes – To assist with the homily and prayers for Mass.
  • Summary Form – For parish staff to fill out and return to your local Catholic Mission Diocesan Director after the collection.

We look forward to your parish partnering with us to support this life‑giving work in Ethiopia, along with many other Church‑run mission programs around the world. If you have any questions, please contact your local Diocesan Director here.
