Pope Francis has launched a universal Church Synod. Inviting all to be part of a discussion regarding the teachings of the Church. Every Parish is invited to be part of this.

On Sunday October 24th, the Church will celebrate World Mission Sunday. This year we are asked to focus on the efforts to build peace in Nigeria where there is great division amongst the population.
