This weekend we welcome Sister Angela Keil, a member of the Sisters of St. Francis. Sr. Angie serves Holy Family Parish in Booneville, KY. Please welcome her and be generous in your prayers and financial gifts for Propagation of Faith Mission Appeal.
WHAT IS THE PROPAGATION OF FAITH?
The Society for the Propagation of the Faith is one of four Pontifical Mission Societies. The others are: The Society of St. Peter Apostle, The Missionary Union of Priests and Religious, and the Holy Childhood Association. The Society of the Propagation of the Faith is an exchange program where by mission speakers from all over the world can make appeals for monetary contributions to support the work of their diocese or order. In the Network phase of the program, our diocesan speakers are selected on a voluntary basis to travel to another diocese in the United States and tell the mission story of our diocese. Donations are collected into a central account and used as a source of income to fund AMAP Grants. In reverse, the Coop phase of the program invites speakers from outside the Diocese of Lexington to make appeals in our parishes and obtain funds to help support their own mission work. Funds raised by Coop speakers are compiled and divided equally among the participating groups.
