Catholic Mission Month

During October each year, Catholic schools like St Martin’s participate in awareness and fundraising activities to support the work of Catholic Mission. Catholic Mission is the official mission aid agency of the Catholic Church.

Catholic Mission continues the mission of Jesus Christ in the world to share faith by:

• speaking the Word,

• caring for people in need, and

• acting for justice and creation.

During October, Catholic Mission focuses on the people around the world who struggle in their everyday lives.

World Mission month challenges us to assist the many people around our world who are affected by poverty, war, conflict and sickness. Mission is an expression of God’s love for us, and our love for others. This Friday, our students are invited to wear crazy socks to raise funds to support the work of Catholic Mission.
