Welcome to the AMRI Website.
The Association of Leaders of Missionaries and Religious of Ireland (AMRI) represents and promotes active collaboration between Religious Institutes, Societies of Apostolic Life and Lay Missionary Organisations. It seeks to respond to existing and emerging realities both in Ireland and overseas by supporting and energising the life and ministries of its members and of the wider church with a renewed sense of hope and relevance.
World Mission Sunday is the Holy Father’s annual appeal for spiritual and financial support so that the life-giving work of overseas mission and missionaries can continue.
It always falls on the second last Sunday in October, meaning this year it will be celebrated over the weekend of Sunday 24th.
Its theme ‘We Cannot Remain Silent – We cannot but speak about what we have seen and heard (Acts 4:20)’ is twofold. It is a message of hope – Jesus Christ is risen and we cannot keep his love, compassion, and mercy to ourselves. It also challenges us to stand up and speak out on behalf of those who are weaker. All too often, the voices that need to be heard are not the loudest. For them, we cannot remain silent.
Thank you to those who attended the launch of APT/ AMRI CAPTives anti-human trafficking education programme launch on 18th October.
The video from this event will be available soon. If you would like to join the programme or for more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
