Mission Appeal Weekend

This weekend, July 20th & July 21st, Fr. Phil Parent, SM, will be visiting St. Ann’s to speak about the Marist Missions.
Since its official recognition by the Church in 1836, the Society of Mary (Marist Fathers and Brothers) has committed itself to the missions in the southwestern Pacific. Since that time, the Marists have expanded into areas in Africa, Asia, and South America. Today there are nearly 230 priests and brothers working in “bush stations,” teaching in schools and seminaries, ministering in training institutions, providing direct service to the poor, oppressed, and marginalized, and contributing to the development of people for a better society and a strong local Church. Contributions to the Marists will help them in their mission of witness to the Gospel, service to the needy, and helping the local Church to build a strong base for its promising future. Thank you for whatever you can do to help them in their life-long commitment and work.
A second collection will be taken at all the Masses this weekend for the Marist Missions.
