Pope Francis highlighted his passion for the Pontifical Mission Societies, known in Australia as Catholic Mission, by reinforcing that mission is at the heart and identity of the Church.
“Catholic Mission is part of that global network. We are with all the communities, in every corner of the world,” says Catholic Mission National Director, Fr Brian Lucas. “Missionaries around the world, remain dedicated to serving their communities.”
“They are the people with a thousand faces, comforting the lives of some the most vulnerable communities, like Bishop “Kike”, they are saying we are still here doing our best to keep vital life changing projects running,” says Fr Brian.
The “We Are Still Here” global video launched as part of World Mission Month, connects more than 30 missionaries and mission partners based in over 25 different countries, speaking their own languages and the languages of those they work with. At its heart the video, has a simple message, but with great impact: we are still here.
Inspired by the words of Pope Francis, Catholic Mission, recognises the many donors, friends and supporters from different backgrounds, whose generosity supports the many projects around the world.
