Mission Ambassadors

Mission Ambassadors in the Diocese of Portland offer to be a presence in their parish for mission and will be a connection between their parish and the Diocesan Missions Office by connecting with parishioners in their parish/cluster to encourage a greater AWARENESS about the work being done for Mission, here at home and overseas.

Mission Ambassadors will help the diocese by:

  • welcoming missionaries when they come to the parish for their summer appeal.
  • reminding parishioners about World Mission Sunday 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?
