Verona Fathers Mission Appeal
Excerpt from Fr. Pat Wilkinson’s letter 8/8/’12:
“You will be pleased to know that the Mission Appeal I made at SS Peter & Paul’s and the Church of the Resurrection raised a total of €3,884 for our missions in MaIawi. Please thank your parishioners for their wonderful response and all who assisted with the appeal; assure them of our gratitude and prayers and congratulate them on their great generosity towards the poorest. I hope the few bits of missionary literature will serve as a reminder that we, too, are always in need of their prayers”
