This Sister Diocese collection is the only opportunity available to the Mission Office to attend to the needs of our brothers and sisters in the Dominican Republic while at the same time offering to the people of the Diocese of Orlando, a missionary experience that is safe, affordable and above all spiritually engaging.
We believe that what the Mission Office does is still a valuable service to the Diocese of Orlando and an important hand up for our friends and families in the mountains of the Dominican Republic.
Thank you for your generous support to our Sister Diocese of San Juan de la Maguana. So far, we have collected $7,242 in donations! This will go very far to support the efforts of the Mission Office of the Diocese of Orlando and to help spread God’s love to those most in need. God Bless!
Please help us support their efforts. Click Below to donate or drop off your donation in the collection boxed marked “Sister Diocese Collection” after Mass this weekend. Thank you for your generous support!
The Mission Office encourages the people of the Diocese of Orlando to accept the responsibilities incumbent on all followers of the Gospel to share their time, talent, and treasure, with those who have limited access to the wealth and resources of the earth. We help to inspire people to become the voice of those who have none. Together, with the people we serve, we seek to find creative solutions to the root causes of injustice in our global community.

“What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.” – Saint Augustine
Hundreds of lives have been touched in the Dominican Republic and here in the Diocese of Orlando since the late Bishop Thomas Grady of Orlando and the late Bishop Ronald Conners of San Juan de la Maguana initiated a mutually beneficial sister relationship between the two dioceses in 1983.
The Mission Office has helped build a sister relationship based on love, faith, trust, hope, and respect between the Diocese of Orlando in Florida and the Diocese of San Juan de la Maguana in the Dominican Republic. The Mission Office strives not only to empower the people of our sister diocese, and improve their lives, but also to educate and encourage the members of the Diocese of Orlando to use their time, talent, and treasure to reach out to those in need.
