Mission Appeal August 7-8, 2021

Each year our parish takes part in a Mission Appeal.  This year the appeal is by the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI). The CMI is the first indigenous religious congregation of India founded by Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara in 1831. There are more than 2000 CMI members serving in 35 countries in the areas of pastoral care, education, social apostolate, health care, mass media and ecumenism. Currently more than 110 priests are serving in the USA and many more are serving in Africa, Latin America, Australia and Europe. Please welcome Rev. Fr. Joseph Kattekara, CMI, to our parish this weekend to preach about their missionary activities. There will be a second collection and your generous financial support and prayers will be highly appreciated.
