Missio Appeal

This weekend we welcome Fr Jan Klaver to give the five yearly appeal. Thanks to all the parishioners who already give to the Pope's official charity for oversees mission Missio, and Britain's own missionary order the Mill Hill Missionaries, through the Red Box. There will not be a second collection, but please do consider taking a Red Box home; it would be great if every home had one to help care for our Church family throughout the world.
