Missio is the new name for the Pontifical Mission Societies in England and Wales, which includes the Association for the Propagation of the Faith (APF) and St Joseph’s Missionary Society (Mill Hill).
The APF-Mill Hill partnership enables parishioners to support the missionary work of the Church both spiritually and financially. Supporters pray for the work of the Missions and help to finance that work, either donating by Direct Debit or contributing by having their own collection box.
There are currently 79 Red Box holders in the parish. Twice a year, in March and September, a collector (known as a Promoter in APF-Mill Hill), will call to empty your box and prepare the contents for banking. The amount collected varies from year to year and will be published in the Parish Bulletin and 'The Georgian'. Each box-holder or Direct Debit contributor receives a quarterly magazine "Mission Today", which helps to keep us in touch with what is happening on the Missionary front. Members also receive a calendar each Christmas.
We are always looking for volunteers and welcome anyone who wishes to have their own collection box, or better still, be a Promoter. If you are interested, please contact Paddy, he'll be happy to hear from you.
