Owerri Mission Appeal
At all weekend Masses, August 22-23, Fr. Michael Okere will make a mission appeal on behalf of the Archdiocese of Owerri, Nigeria. The Archdiocese provides spiritual, pastoral, educational, healthcare, and emergency services to more than one million Catholics. Mission funds help to finance the training of seminarians and the rehabilitation of aging hospitals, churches, and schools. Christ Our King will offer a weekly tithe to the appeal. Parishioners who wish to contribute individually may place an additional check in the collection basket; the check should should be made payable to Christ Our King, and the memo line should read: "Nigeria Mission."
