Mission Ambassador Program

The purpose of the Mission Ambassador Program is to connect the Missions/CRS Office to parishioners in the parish/cluster for greater awareness about the work being done for Mission, here at home and overseas.
       
Mission Ambassadors represent the Diocesan Mission Office by:

  • welcoming missionaries when they come to the parish for their summer appeal.
  • reminding parishioners about World Mission Sunday (October 19, 2014) by helping their pastor communicate through announcements, bulletins, and by greeting parishioners as they arrive one week before the collection.
  • promoting the Mission program (Holy Buckets) at the beginning of Advent.
  • promoting CRS Rice Bowl prior to Lent.
  • sharing initiatives from the parish with the diocesan office for publication on the website. The Diocese is doing so much to help the missions, why not let others know?
  • praying the Mission Rosary and receiving updates about missionaries.
