Every year Bishop Fintan give permission for one missionary order to speak throughout the diocese in order to promote their work and to appeal for financial aid. This year he has granted permission to the Franciscan Brothers whose mission is in Kenya and Uganda. Their main work is in the area of education, sustainable agriculture and rural development. This weekend Br. a member of the Franciscan Order will be with us and speaking at a number of Masses this weekend at which you will have an opportunity to contribute to their mission.
