Fr. Dennis Nimene, the Mission Co-Op priest who will be addressing our parish next weekend, is currently based in Monrovia, Liberia where he is the Secretary General of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of Liberia (CABICAL). The money from mission appeals will be used to support the buildings of the Conference, for repairing the building, and for purchasing office equipment for the building.

As stated in their mission statement, the CABICAL is "the Catholic Church of Liberia; a portion of God's people rich in our tradition and in our diversity, striving in faith for fullness of life. In communion with the Bishop of Rome and the Church throughout the world, our mission is to witness to the Good News of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit by worshiping God in word and sacrament; proclaiming and sharing our faith promoting holiness of life through continuing conversion, serving human needs, especially those of the poor and the oppressed, forming Christian communities on the family, parish and diocesan levels. Fostering reconciliation and harmony among the people of our diocese, our counties, our nation, and our planet. Faithful to the constant teachings of the Church, we also pledge to collaborate with all peoples, especially with other Christian churches and with the Jewish community, as we devote ourselves to being thankful, responsible stewards of God's gracious and bountiful gifts. While we journey in faith, we anticipate with joy the day when Christ will come again and everything will be complete in God's love."

Fr. Dennis will share more about his appeal to help fund this important Catholic organization next weekend.
