Mission Appeals 2016Over the course of the year SMA priests are appealing in various part of the country. The appeals are for the support of our missions in Africa and for the support of our students in formation for the priesthood. In England, the SMA Fathers are appealing in the Archdiocese of Birmingham. Pictured, you find the priest who are doing the Mission Appeals over the course of 2016. We are an international group coming from all parts of the British Isles and from Poland, India and Nigeria.We look forward to meeting many old friends/benefactors in various communities and we look forward to making new friends also. We thank God for your continued generosity towards the mission in Africa and assure you of a daily remembrance in our prayer.
