Miles for Mission – a wonderful occasion for missionary togetherness!
October is Mission Month and World Missions Ireland (the Pope’s official charity for overseas mission) in conjunction with the World Meeting of Families is hosting its annual walk/run in the Phoenix Park, Dublin. The event will take place on Saturday, 14th October from 10am. Registration is available online at popupraces.ie but runners and walkers can also register on the day from 9am at the Papal Cross!
2km Family Event: €5.00 per family
5km Walk/Run: €15.00 per person
10km Walk/Run: €20.00 per person
Given the huge numbers of Irish missionaries overseas, World Missions Ireland and the World Meeting of Families is hoping that this event will be an occasion for families to come together on mission, to enjoy the missionary camaraderie, and help raise funds for missionaries working with very needy families around the world. The 2km family walk begins at 10am. This “families helping families” event will also give us time to reflect on our own missionary walks in life! It will be a fun occasion to meet some of our Irish missionaries who have a wealth of experiences and wonderful stories to share. So, please lend us your feet as we raise spirits as well as funds! The Archbishop of Cashel & Emly, Archbishop Kieran O’Reilly, will be there on the day to join and walk with our missionary families!
