We thank the brethren who have led on these missional projects within their parishes and pray for the success of their ongoing ministries of mission and outreach.
The new Mission Committee is a company of mission-minded priests of our society who aim to share and encourage good practice in catholic mission and evangelism as well as undertaking important grant-making functions.
Please do support the Mission Committee in your prayers and do all that you can to encourage giving to Mission Direct as more funds raised leads to more catholic mission and outreach projects supported in communities served by SSC priests.
The Mission Committee will be meeting in the early summer, therefore please do get in your Mission Direct Grant Applications now – especially if you have a summer or autumn project in mind or need support in connection with the Youth Pilgrimage to Walsingham. The Grant Application Forms are available on the website and when completed can be emailed to me firstname.lastname@example.org
Fr. Philip O’Reilly,ssc
Chairman of the Mission Committee.
