October is World Mission Month

On 24 October, Catholic Mission Sunday, we will hear the powerful story of Churai*, a mother who found her way to the Mother and Babies Home, run by the Good Shepherd Sisters in Bangkok, Thailand, during a desperate time in her life.

The Good Shepherd Sisters’ mission is to promote the dignity and human rights of all, especially women and children; but they can only do that with support from people like you.
Please come with an open and generous heart.

The Diocese of Lismore stretches along the coastal strip from Tweed Heads in the north to Laurieton in the south and west to the foothills of the Great Dividing Range, encompassing five Traditional Nations.

We respectfully acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land upon which the Diocese of Lismore sits, the peoples of the Bundjalung, Yaegl, Gumbaynggir, Dunghutti and Birpai Nations, who have walked and cared for this land for thousands of years and their descendants who still maintain these spiritual and cultural connections.

We would like to extend our respect to all Aboriginal people of other nations that may be visiting our webpage.
