A home for all people

Dear confreres and friends,

I would like to share with you the Pope’s intentions for this month of August. Let us entrust him in a special way to Mary, our mother, particularly this month as we remember her Assumption on August 15.

Pope Benedict's general prayer intention for August is: "That those who are without work or homes or who are otherwise in serious need may find understanding and welcome, as well as concrete help in overcoming their difficulties".

His mission intention is: "That the Church may be a 'home' for all people, ready to open her doors to any who are suffering from racial or religious discrimination, hunger or wars forcing them to emigrate to other countries".

In Don Bosco,
Fr. Andrew Wong

It is a challenge of our christian catholic faith; that the church may be a warm home for all.
