SPECIAL SECOND COLLECTION

TODAY FOR WALSINGHAM!

raise funds for the development of the The Basilica of our Lady of Walsingham, England’s National Shrine to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Our Parish has a long association with Walsingham through annual Pilgrimages and other regular visits. If you can, please give generously to this important appeal.    When England returns to Walsingham, Our Lady

       will return  to England” – Pope Leo XIII

         MISSIO
http://www.missio.org.uk

Since 1922 MISSIO has been the Pope’s official charity for overseas mission.  Its aim is to bring the Gospel where there is turmoil, poverty and uncertainty; it does this principally where the Church is new, young and often poor.  The purpose of MISSIO is to empower local people to form and sustain communities of Faith and thus it trains and nurtures church leaders (including Priests, Deacons and lay people) so that the life-saving work of Christ’s Church can continue.

On Saturday 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th October Fr Wayne Coughlin (the Diocesan Director of MISSIO and Parish Priest of Wendover-Great Missenden) will celebrate the

9:30am Mass at St Thomas Aquinas Church;

during the course of which he will talk about the work of MISSIO.

NB: He will NOT be appealing for money!

Please support these Masses and chat with Fr Wayne afterwards about this official papal charity
