SATURDAY MERCY MISSIONS
April 20, 2019
“We cannot passively and calmly wait in our Church buildings.
We must be a Church that goes forth! We must all become missionary disciples!”
- Pope Francis
On Saturday morning, both the Youth Track and the Family Track will serve between these four mission sites. If you are participating in the Family Track and would like to join us on Saturday, please be sure to register here and select how many members of your family will be attending the mission, as well as which site you would like to serve. This is so that we have an accurate count of how many people will be attending each location, as each site can accomodate a certain number of missionaries. If you have any questions, please contact Adriana at email@example.com.
