Mission Month & Propagation of the Faith

A second collection will be taken up next weekend in aid of Propagation of the Faith.

In 1818 a young French laywoman, Pauline Marie Jaricot, began the Association for the Propagation of the Faith. A far-seeing ‘doer’, with a passion for mission, little did she know when she first established the society, that it would become the largest aid agency for the missions in the entire history of the Catholic Church. It was accorded Pontifical status in 1922. Today the Society supports young Churches throughout the developing world. The Limerick Diocesan collection for the Missions last year amounted to €20,400.
