2017 World Mission Appeal Kit

WMM17-Resources-Header

The 2017 Catholic Mission World Mission Appeal focuses on Sister Mary Hoaian and the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Nha Trang, Vietnam who work tirelessly to provide critical community resources, such as clean drinking water, for the forgotten farming families located in the coastal mountain regions. These isolated families struggle to survive on less than $2 per day.

Thanks to the help of Catholic Mission, the Sisters are seeking to install a new clean drinking water filtration system at the rear of their kindergarten. Sister Mary and the children who are orphaned and disadvantaged who attend the daily lunch program, have all been praying to receive this new service, as they know that it will greatly improve their daily health and general wellbeing. “If we could just get a new water filtration service, this will allow us to meet the foundational need of this isolated community. It will also enable us to dramatically impact the health outcomes of the children and the families here within our care,” says Sister Mary.

With your support of Catholic Mission, you can help provide these isolated families with a new clean filtered water system, and much needed education and medical services to ensure they can have a future filled with hope.

WMM-2017-Resources-Appeal-EnvelopeDuring the 2017 Catholic Mission World Mission Appeal, parishioners are invited to support the work of Sister Mary Hoaian and the Sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Sadly, throughout the country, poorer children under the age of five are twice as likely to die before their fifth birthday, when compared with children in Australia; and a third of all children born in the coastal mountain regions needlessly suffer from stunted growth due to the impacts of malnutrition, polluted water and a lack of accessible health services. With the help of Catholic Mission, Sister Mary Hoaian is seeking to provide a new clean water filtration system, medical services and education to the isolated families living in Xuan Son.

Parishioners are given the opportunity to support the work of Catholic Mission with a single gift or on a monthly basis. Parishioners can obtain a tax deductible receipt for gifts given to our community development programs, while gifts to our faith programs are non-tax-deductible.

Personal details are required for all credit card, direct debit, tax-deductible and monthly donations. In addition, all parishioners are encouraged to include their personal details, so they can be personally thanked for their generous support.

Please ensure that enough appeal envelopes for every expected parishioner are placed along every pew in your parish church, along with the same number of pencils, prior to each mass on the appeal weekend. Make sure to restock envelopes after each mass as this helps drive a successful appeal.

WMM-2017-Resources-Summary-FormThe Summary Form makes it easy for your parish to reconcile the money raised through your Catholic Mission World Mission Appeal. By filling in the summary sheet using the three simple steps below, you can ensure that parishioners receive the acknowledgement and receipts they need.

  • Collect donations and reconcile by completing the Summary Form.
  • Bank cash donations and write a cheque to ‘Catholic Mission’ for total cash donations (this is very important as Catholic Mission is not able to collect cash).
  • Post the completed paperwork and appeal envelopes (including Summary Form, completed appeal envelopes, individual cheques and parish cheque for cash donations, and a copy of the deposit slip) to the postal address of your diocesan director.
