Missio Donations

In 2022, Our Lady of the Angels raised £749 through our Red Boxes and donations to Missio and the Mill Hill Missionaries.


Our missionary community here at Our Lady of the Angels is part of a worldwide network of people supporting missionaries through prayer and financial assistance.

Your support of projects such as the Fundong Mission station in Cameroon has enabled Fr Leon, a Mill Hill Missionary, to help children learn in a safe environment and instil values that empower them to turn away from conflict and towards faith in God. Visit missio.org.uk to find out more about how your support changes lives for the better, or contact Gilly at gillymurray1@gmail.com if you would like to have a Red Box in 2023.

A message from Bishop Patrick

Our vision for the Diocese of Nottingham is to become a more outward-looking missionary Catholic community. We are currently reorganising our parish and deanery structures, and to ensure we are supported in mission-focused initiatives the Diocese has launched a Mission Enabling Programme. We must also develop a financial plan, one that is well informed and meets our needs.

Therefore after Easter we are commencing a consultative phase, with professional support, to gather opinions from parishioners about our funding strategies. If you are asked, please consider giving your views, through a one-to-one conversation or an at-Mass survey. Please also pray for our mission and for this journey of discernment, that we can share the love and message of Christ more widely.
