Bishop's Letter

October 2013

Dear People of the Diocese:

At Baptism, each of us is given the responsibility to be missionary - to share our faith and to be active participants in the Church's mission to all peoples.

World Mission Sunday, celebrated this year on October 20th, gives us the opportunity to reach out in faith to more than two-thirds of the world's people who have yet to hear the "Good News" of Jesus Christ, or to experience - through the word and witness of missionaries - His abiding love. On World Mission Sunday, within the context of the Eucharist, we can offer our prayers. Through the Society of the Propagation of the Faith, we can offer our financial support for mission making Jesus known 'to the ends of the earth."
