"It is more blessed to give than to receive." ACTS 20:35
ACTS – which stands for “A Call to Share” was started in 2006 with the aim of sharing this joy of giving to the poor and needy in countries around us. Each year some 500 participants from different parishes as well as non-Catholics, have been on such mission trips to Cambodia, Myanmar, Vietnam and Philippines.
We are inviting you to join us again to mission to the following countries during advent this year.
|#||Mission||Mission start||Mission end||# of Participants|

Online applications for the yearend missions will open in early May 2018.
In previous years, participants would register for their missions on the website. With effect from 2018, participants may only apply for the mission on the website and are only confirmed to be registered after attending a compulsory "Mission Awareness" session. This is to help participants better understand the Mission and discern whether their expectations are in keeping with the Mission's objectives and requirements and avoid disappointment. ACTS welcomes participation by non-Catholics in our missions, who will also need to attend the "Mission Awareness" session to confirm their application.
The steps for registration are:
|Mission Awareness session||1-Jul
|3||Mission Send off (final admin)||11-Nov||2-5pm||Sunday|
|4||Medical Team Mission Formation||2-Dec||2-5pm||Sunday|
Look out for the online application in early May!
