Today we celebrate world Mission Sunday. In the context of the ongoing Synod of Bishops the theme chosen by the Holy Father is “Together with young people, let us bring the Gospel to all. He encourages us to reflect on this fact “I am a mission on this Earth, that is the reason why I am here in this world” Our mission is to make Christ known to the world will be possible if we open our hearts and let ourselves be infused with the love of Christ. The Collections at all masses will be sent to Archbishop House. Kindly donate generously; the boxes will be kept in the Church for the same. You can drop your contribution any time during the week.
