A Celebration of Missionary Activity

October 13, 2018 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Dunkeld Diocesan Centre
24-28 Lawside Rd
Dundee DD3 6XY

We invite all our parishes to send about 3 people somehow involved in “missionary” activity either at home or abroad. Ideally they would not all be from the same group. Representatives could be from your SCIAF group, Missio, Justice & Peace, S.V.D.P, Lourdes support group, soup kitchen, some specific missionary fundraising group, parish group involved in the neighbourhood, community market garden, hospital visiting.

The aim of our day together is to celebrate that we are not just doing “our own thing” but are living our baptism as missionaries and as part of a much larger missionary movement, larger than the parishes and the Diocese and we are part of the Church’s mission. We all try to live Jesus’ mission in all its diversity.

The day is planned just now to be something like this:

10am – Brief Prayer in the chapel
10.30pm – Talk by Fr Vincent Lockhart Scottish National Director of Missio followed by sharing in groups.
1pm – Showing of film “The Claim” about Blessed Oscar Romero presented by Julian Filochowski of the Archbishop Romero Trust followed by some questions and answers.
3pm – Closing Mass celebrated by Bishop Stephen.
