Leonela and Sasha - Baucau, Timor-Leste

The Catholic Mission Immersions team is usually busy coordinating hundreds of students from schools right around Australia as they embark on life-changing visits to Central Australia, Cambodia, the Philippines, Timor-Leste and Thailand.

Although travel plans for 2020 have been disrupted, the relationships between schools and the generous communities who host them are very much alive as they find new ways to engage and live out their missionary call.

Leonela and Sasha who usually open their world in Baucau, Timor Leste to immersion participants remind us of our common experiences and witness to the spirit of hope that prevails;

We are still here and we will soon be walking alongside one another again.

Your partnership matters

In times of hardship, it’s important that we stick together. COVID-19 is having a significant impact on our mission partners and the Church, and it’s vital that we help support the work of mission to the most vulnerable in this time.
