11 October 2015


“You will have treasure in heaven.”




With the Gospel of Christ, there is always something more. At whatever stage we find ourselves, there is always so much more to come, and so at any stage of our life we are still at the beginning.

MESSAGE FROM ARCHBISHOP OBRIEN REGARDING WORLD MISSION SUNDAY On 17-18 October, we will celebrate World Mission Sunday 2015, when we are called to focus our attention on the needs of the Church in the developing world. Our prayers and financial support are vitally needed by missionaries serving in more than 1,150 dioceses throughout Asia, Africa, the Pacific Islands, and parts of Latin America and Europe. Your generosity makes it possible for local priests, religious, and catechists to reach out to communities, families, and children in desperate need, bringing the light of Christ to the darkest of circumstances. World Mission Sunday does not just happen here in our local Church. It is truly a universal celebration – a worldwide recommitment – uniting Catholics throughout the world to the Church’s evangelizing mission. This Sunday provides us with a renewed opportunity to pray in solidarity for the work of the missionary Church. I encourage you to support this collection and continue to pray that all of us in this Archdiocese may be eager and effective witnesses of Jesus in our world, which is so in need of His love and peace.
