The theme of this year’s Missio World Mission Appeal, ‘You Give Them Something to Eat’, is taken from the gospel of St. Luke when Jesus commands the apostles to feed thousands of people after he stopped teaching them. This command, today, is still on.
This appeal invites parishioners across Malta to reach out through their financial gifts and prayers to support the crucial work of the Ethiopian Catholic Church, and dedicated missionaries like Sr Maureen and Fr. Jieshak, in helping people seeking a new future through the power of education and the spirit of Jesus Christ.
Parishioners are also encouraged to consider how this appeal is a concrete way to respond to the invitation by Pope Francis to participate in the mission of the Church to ‘go forth’, and to share with others your faith, hope and evangelising charity.
Together we can help Ethiopia and other countries, and throughout the world, grow up to be fully alive, and achieve their dreams of a positive and hope-filled future.
Bulletin notices have been created to help your parish promote this year’s Missio World Mission Appeal. Parish bulletins are an effective method to inform parishioners about the upcoming appeal, and a nice way to thank them for their generosity and support following the appeal weekend.
