St Luke’s parish first became a member of the A.P.F. (now known as Missio) in 1989 when Father Ivan Burke and Dr Peter Carr set up the system of red-box collections. Since then we have continued supporting the missions and last year (2019) contributed over £1900 to Missio.
In a nutshell, Missio is the Charity for world mission:
helping poor communities, training priests and enriching lives;
as the Missio website itself states:
Together we are enriching today’s global Catholic community.
Together we are training tomorrow’s generation of Priests and Sisters.
Together we are giving hope to the world’s poorest children.
Together we are Missio.

here you will see a vast amount of information about the work done by Missio throughout the world.
Our parish involvement is as follows:
Please contact Father Pascal at the parish house if you are interested in becoming part of our Missio community and he will pass your details on to Laurence, our current Missio secretary.
