“Second only to personal redemption and salvation, the main thrust of the Scriptures is to meet Christ through working with the poor and disadvantaged.” — Bono
Earlier this week the leadership team of Mission Youth visited us in Cheshire. This summer,Legionary Fathers Michael Mitchell & Walter Schu, and Katelyn Moroney & Jana Crea (both consecrated women of Regnum Christi) will bring 240 missionaries to Haiti, Mexico and Fiji on 15 different mission trips.
A total of 500 young people will have participated in such missions by the end of 2015.
Please keep these young people in your prayers as they go to serve Christ in our needy brothers and sisters.
