CATHOLIC MISSION SUNDAY will be celebrated at St. Rita’s on 15th October 2017.

The 2017 Catholic Mission Church Appeal focuses on the life-giving work of Catholic Mission in Uganda, highlighting the important work with women and children at risk undertaken by Sister Mary Goretti, from the local Ugandan order, the Daughters of Mary.

Parishioners are invited to reach out through their financial gifts and prayers to support the work of Sister Mary, who is responsible for running the St Luke Bujuni Health Centre, which provides the parish’s 15,000-strong population with affordable, quality healthcare, regardless of faith.

Together we can support women and children’s health through Jesus’ healing ministry which is part of the life-giving mission, helping missionaries like Sister Mary reach out and give life in Uganda and all around the world.

Inspired by the Gospel of John, ‘I have come so that they may have life and have it to the full’ (John 10:10), the 2017 Catholic Mission Church Appeal focuses on the life-giving work of Sister Mary and her staff at St Luke’s with women and children.
