A great time was had at the Leeds Diocesan Mission Mass on Saturday 25th September. It was a great opportunity to thank and pray for Missio’s volunteer Local Secretaries and Red Box supporters across the Diocese of Leeds, and also to start to prepare for World Mission Sunday, which this year takes place on 24th October.
The Mass was held at St Joseph’s, Batley Carr and was organised by Fr Jonathan Hart (Missio Diocesan Director) along with the Diocesan Mission Team and parishioners of St Joseph’s.
Fr Emmanuel Mbeh MHM, Assistant Priest in the Mill Hill Missionaries’ parish in Sunderland, spoke after Mass, and presentations were made to several long-serving Local Secretaries to mark their dedication and hard work.
This year is Fr Jonathan’s silver jubilee of priesthood so a ‘world solidarity cake’ was shared in celebration of his twenty-five years of ministry. Fr Jonathan is pictured sharing a slice of solidarity with Fr Emmanuel and parishioners from St Joseph’s.
