This weekend is Mission Appeal Weekend, and this year, we are very happy to welcome Fr. Noas Nag, from the Indian Missionary Society, Ranchi Region. As part of our annual Mission Appeal, we will have a special second collection for these missionaries who work in India.
As Fr. Nag will explain at all the Masses this weekend, the members of the Indian Missionary Society, Ranchi Region work in North India among the tribal people who live in the rural areas and in forests and mountains, where the work of development has not reached. These missionaries strive for the integral development of all of those they help from religious, educational, health and social perspec- tives. The Indian Missionary Society also runs schools, hostels, orphanages, and drug rehabilitation centers.
Please join me in welcoming our visiting missionary priest, Fr. Nag, and as always, please continue to pray for me as I will pray for you.
