SPECIAL COLLECTION Today for the Missions

This World Mission Day we are invited to help the people of Uganda and focus on the work of Religious Sisters such as Sr. Jane Frances in Nsambya Babies Home. Sr. Jane Frances refers to herself as the ‘Mother’ of the children in her care. Knowing how important a mother’s love is for
these orphaned or abandoned babies, Sr. Jane Frances and the other ‘mothers’ at the home seek to be that loving and kind presence for each baby. Please help her and many other missionaries around the world to continue this essential work of proclaiming God’s love in both word and action. www.missio.scot www.facebook.com/missio.scot
