Mission appeal highlights Sarah’s journey of hope

Accused of witchcraft at the age of four and with her fate decided, survival seemed the best case scenario for Sarah.

However, Catholic Mission’s 2019 Church Appeal, which will be held in parishes throughout Adelaide in October, tells the story of her rescue and remarkable turnaround.

The theme of this year’s appeal is ‘Do not fear, for I am with you’.

It will raise funds for the crucial work of Church missionaries in northern Ghana, like Sister Stan Therese Mumuni who runs the Nazareth Home for God’s Children in the Diocese of Yendi.

“Sr Stan epitomises what it means to be a true missionary in your own community,” says acting Diocesan director for Catholic Mission in Adelaide, Tony Johnston.

“She has risked her own safety and wellbeing to ensure the protection and fullness of life for the most vulnerable children in Ghana.”
