WORLD MISSION SUNDAY NEXT WEEKEND Next Sunday, World Mission Sunday, Pope Benedict XVI calls every Catholic in the world to celebrate our vocation to be a missionary. As Catholics around the world - here at home and in the Missions - gather at the Eucharist around the table of the Lord, we are to pray for the Church’s worldwide missionary work. We pray for those awaiting the “Good News” of our Lord’s great love for us and for the missionaries who offer the poor and suffering the light of Christ. And we are to offer financial help through the Society for the Propogation of the Faith for more than 1,150 dioceses in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Pacific Islands. THANK YOU … to Phillip and Betty Morris, Marshall and Bobbie Long, and Woody and Mary Virginia Young for the wonderful breakfast last Sunday. Your efforts were greatly appreciated by all in attendance. THANK YOU FOR T-SHIRTS Many thanks to all who responded to the Boy Scout/Cub Scout request for used t-shirts. The more than 30 collected at MMJ helped put us over our goal of 200 needed for this weekend’s Cuboree 2011 at Camp Attakapas. - Diane Fuqua
