Supporting the life and work of the Arrupe Center in Cambodia, managed by Bishop Enrique Figaredo Alvar Gonzalez SJ in the Apostolic Prefecture of Battambang, in the north-west of the country, where for over 20 years they have accompanied and provided learning and growth opportunities for people with disabilities: this is the commitment of “Catholic Mission Australia”, National Direction of the Pontifical Mission Societies in Australia, on the occasion of “Missionary Month”, next October, in which the Catholic Church celebrates World Mission Sunday scheduled for October 18.
Throughout the month, Catholics from all over the world come together to support and celebrate missionary work and evangelization. “The Pontifical Mission Societies are at the forefront to help communities in the most vulnerable areas of the world”, says in a note sent to Fides News Agency Fr. Brian Lucas, Director of “Catholic Mission” Australia.
“This year, in particular, the commitment for missionary October focuses on the precious work of priests, religious and lay missionaries in Cambodia, in supporting people with disabilities and their families”, says Fr. Brian, citing one of the many examples of Catholic Mission’s action. “Thanks to the generosity of our donors, this support can change their lives”, notes Fr. Brian.
