n the remote hills and valleys of our Archdiocese, the ‘roads’ are often little more than rutted, boulder filled tracks. Rivers must be forded without bridges and after heavy rains the roads become impassable. Even in dry weather a vehicle can only go so far … and the journey must be finished on foot.
This is what our Mission priests face in their quest to bring practical help and spiritual salvation to people on the Zulu Missions.
Our Archdiocese has 30 outlying parishes (Missions) and 160 remote outstations. On Sunday, after his parish Masses, the priest moves on to his outstations to hear confessions, say Mass, and meet with the people – often taking food parcels, fresh vegetables or medical supplies with him.
It’s not an easy job – and without sturdy all terrain vehicles, it would be impossible. Our priests have the spirit and determination to serve their people, but we’re struggling to find the money to service and maintain vehicles, buy new tyres and keep the fuel tanks full.
Please will you help keep our Mission priests in the field by making your donation now.
Your gift means so much more than the tangible necessities it will buy.
It means comfort and hope for people who live in abject poverty. It brings the knowledge that they are loved – by God and by His servants. It brings the relief of confession and the blessing of the sacraments … and it brings practical help for those needing advice, help with applying for child support and old age grants, precious food and medicines for those who are ill.
So please will you renew your support now during Mission Month.
