MISSION OFFICE THANK YOU
Thank you St. Francis Xavier Parish for the generous contribution to World Mission Sunday. We appreciate all the energy and effort that you put forth in the promotion of this global connection of solidarity. Pope Francis, in his message for World Mission Sunday 2019 at the 93rd Annual World Mission Day. Shared “Each of us is a mission to the world, for each of us is the fruit of God’s love. This life is a treasure to be given, communicated and proclaimed without excluding anyone.” Each year, every church in our Catholic community throughout the world contributes to the World Mission Sunday collection. This global fund of solidarity for the newest parishes among us shows a degree of communion rarely glimpsed. Thank you for your wonderful participation in our Catholic Church and its growing presence throughout the world by contributing to the World Mission Sunday collection. We are all a mission, a sign of hope for an uncertain world. May God continue to fill you with grace and joy.
