Beginning on Monday, Oct. 21st, following World Mission Sunday, students in K-8 will embark on a mission journey during Religion classes. This journey will take them to different lands where they will experience the customs and faith expressions of the family of God throughout the world. The program that we will be using is called Journey With Jesus and is sponsored by and developed for the Colomban Fathers to continue their commitment to provide mission education and global awareness materials to the Church in the United States. The program is designed to develop students’ awareness of global realities, deepen their understanding of their baptismal call to mission, and provide concrete examples of how missionaries everywhere walk in the footsteps of Jesus. On Friday we will take up a collection which will be sent to the Columban Fathers to help in the continuation of their work.
