The parishioners of Holy Rosary are very generous. Through our annual collection and cake sale we have raised substantial sums of money. Our hope would be to retain that support. For almost 100 years Down and Connor Apostolic Work has supported missionaries and their work overseas where the church was not rooted or fully established. Thanks to donations, all through that century, churches, schools and hospitals were built, making life a little easier for the people they served.
More recently the work is at a more personal level, providing much needed financial support to individual priests or sisters.
Sister Mary writes from Zambia of the work she and her colleagues do to empower young and old in often dire circumstances to carry on leading a good life, close to God.
Father Niall Martin in Kenya writes, ‘Poverty is still around us. You have large agencies here which do great work, but often it is the little person who gets lost in the crowd. Sometimes it is the little help that is offered by us that gets them back on their feet and helps them push on with life.’
With your ongoing support through our missionary contacts we will continue to help the needy and distressed ‘push on with life, close to God.’
