October is Mission Month

Next Sunday is World Mission Sunday! Next Sunday, October 21st, Pope Francis is asking you and every Catholic worldwide to come together in celebration of World Mission Sunday. On this very special day every Church, in every parish, across our globe, will give what they can, no matter how little, towards the World Mission Sunday Collection.

A special Collection for the Missions will be taken up at all Masses next weekend. Please give generously. Your contribution will be used to help spread faith, hope and love by supporting overseas missionaries, many of whom work in some of the worlds most impoverished and remote communities.

If you cannot contribute on the 21st, you can donate €4.00 now by texting the word ‘Mission’ to 50300. Texts cost €4.00. World Missions Ireland will receive a minimum of €3.60. Service Provider LikeCharity. Helpline 076 680 5278.

ICA Castletroy

Volunteer Sunday

Next Sunday, October 21st we will celebrate Volunteering Sunday. By reason of our Baptism we are all called to exercise our Christian Apostolate. We are called to serve each other, each according to our own state in life and our talents and most especially according to God’s Providence.

Next weekend, Anton O’Carroll, the Chairperson of the Parish Council will address us. He will outline the initiatives already underway in our parish and will set out our hopes and aspirations for future initiatives and will articulate the Lord’s invitation to us to participate in order to serve God and one another, to give greater life and energy to our community and to promote the message and values of the Gospel.

Appeal for First Holy Communion Dresses

Fr. Francis Slevam, Rathdrum, Co. Wicklow, is returning home to India at the end of October to cover three parishes. He is hoping to receive First Holy Communion Dresses to bring back with him as the local community is very poor. Should you have any such dresses and are willing to give them to a good cause, Fr. Selvam would greatly appreciate them. He is from Nadu, South India.

Please drop the dresses to the Church no later than Sunday, October 28th. Many thanks.
