October is Mission Month

In this time of pandemic uncertainty, Pope Francis asks us ‘to invite Jesus into the boats of our lives. To hand over our fears to him so that he can conquer them, like the disciples, we will experience that with Jesus on board there will be no shipwreck. Because this is God’s strength turning to the good what happens to us, even the bad things. He brings serenity into our storms, because with God life never dies.’

I welcome this booklet for Mission Month 2020, produced by World Missions Ireland (WMI). I hope the booklet will be a beneficial resource for all who use it during Mission Month and beyond.
