The Catholic Diocese of Salina participates in the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, the Society of St. Peter the Apostle, and the Missionary Childhood Association. These organizations are for spreading a deepening awareness of the universal mission of the Church and to inform Catholics of the life and needs of the Catholic Church in the Missions. It is a means to encourage prayer and financial help for the mission churches and for the support and education of the seminarians in developing countries.
Our involvement in these efforts are through the universal World Mission Sunday Collection held on October 18, 2020 and in the visiting Missionary Cooperation Plan of inviting men and women to the diocese to appeal for the needs in areas where their communities do missionary work. The appeal for the Society of St. Peter the Apostle is held as part of the Missionary Cooperation Plan.
Our office is able to assist priests within our diocese by sending the extra Mass stipends which are made available to us by parishes of our diocese.
You have given all peoples one common origin,
and your will is to gather them as one family in yourself.
Fill the hearts of all people with the fire of your love
and the desire to ensure justice for all their brothers and sisters.
By sharing the good things you give us
may we secure justice and equality for every human being,
an end to all division,
and a human society built on love and peace.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever and ever. Amen.
