Mary’s Meals: We began feeding 200 children in Malawi in 2002 and are now feeding 1,838,859 children every day in places of education. Our vision is that every hungry child receives a daily meal and that all who have more than they need, share with those who are in need. With our no frills policy, it costs with Mary's Meals €18.30 to give a child a meal every day for a full school year.
To raise funds and awareness of Mary's Meals, we are walking throughout Ireland. Walks are starting on 7 August from Kilkenny, Malin, Derry, Armagh, Dublin, and Limerick and are all arriving in Knock Co Mayo on 15 August (restriction permitting). Maybe you could get involved in Step by Step to Feed the Next Child. You are invited to visit our website www.marysmeals.ie For more information you can phone Fr Eamonn Kelly on 0879077985. We would also like to organise a local walk in your area. Sponsor cards and t-

MESSAGE OF HIS HOLINESS POPE FRANCIS
FOR WORLD MISSION DAY 2022
“You shall be my witnesses” (Acts 1:8)
Trócaire Announcement -
The crisis in Ukraine is a devastating humanitarian disaster, which people in Ireland are responding to with deep compassion.
The most effective way to provide support to the people of Ukraine is to donate money to humanitarian agencies that are working on the ground in Ukraine and Poland, like Trócaire.
Trócaire is working with Caritas Ukraine and Caritas Poland, who are supporting people both within Ukraine and people who have managed to cross the border. They are providing shelter and essential supplies, including food, blankets, and hygiene supplies.
However, Trócaire has appealed that we do not forget the many millions of people who are already facing similar crises around the world and who risk being left with no support as the world focuses on Ukraine.
Millions of people in countries such as South Sudan, Somalia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo are displaced by conflict and some are facing famine. Trócaire’s Lenten campaign supports people living through these forgotten crises. Trócaire also has a separate and specific appeal for Ukraine.
We highly recommend that members of the public express their kindness and compassion to people fleeing conflict everywhere by making their donations to Trócaire’s Ukraine appeal in addition to their donations to Trócaire’s Lenten appeal.
The generosity of the people of Ireland is deeply appreciated. Every cent and euro donated to Trócaire will be used to support people who are facing a deep crisis and to ensure no one is forgotten.
