                                        Mission Sunday is next Sunday, 24th October
 On this special day we are given the opportunity to express our unity with and support to Christian communities everywhere. 
World Mission Ireland provides spiritual and practical assistance to the Church’s mission worldwide. “Together in Mission” we can all play an active role in helping over 1,096 dioceses and communities globally. This is the Church in action – communities supporting communities. Support is needed by prayer as well as financially. 
On Mission Sunday 24th October 2010 please pray for the universal missions of the Church and give as generously as you can to the Mission Sunday Collection. Every cent of the money donated to this collection goes into a universal fund and is distributed to the missions most in need.
All aid is greatly appreciated by communities less fortunate than ourselves and “Together in Mission” may we continue to spread the good news in God’s name.
                                                     Altar List of the Dead
Please take home a list of the dead sheet and return the completed list to the box at the back of the Church before the 2nd November (The Feast of All Souls). All our dead are remembered in our Masses during the month of November (The month of the Holy Souls) and on the First Friday Masses throughout the year.
