OCTOBER IS MISSION MONTH
E

very day, priests and sisters serving 30 Missions and 160 remote outstations in our Archdiocese go about their work – helping to relieve suffering, and bring hope and salvation to the Zulu people.

After Sunday Mass at the parish, priests travel to their outstations to hear confession, say Mass, and spend time with the people … often taking food parcels, fresh vegetables or medical supplies with them. Because the communities they serve are poor, without basic facilities like running water and electricity.

But – thanks to generous support from people all over the world – clinics, schools, hospitals and churches have been built, and feeding schemes, poverty relief and skills development projects have been started.

During Mission Month, please will you make a donation to continue the work here in South Africa?

Your offering could buy meat and vegetables for a soup kitchen, so that the poorest people don’t go hungry … it could be used to teach a mother sewing skills she can use to earn an income … or support health care and education programmes.

DONATE NOW
Above all, you’ll help bring people closer to God … so that even in their darkest hour, they’ll be strengthened by their faith and sustained through the sacraments of the Church.

In far flung rural areas, the Mission station is a beacon of hope and stability. Your gift now, during Mission month, will keep God’s light of love and care burning bright in places like these.
