Socktober for World Mission Month

Want to make a difference and win prizes at the same time? Well here is your chance by getting involved in Socktober for World Mission Month, and make a difference for children in need in Timor-Leste.

David Mcgovern, the Diocesan Director for Catholic Mission explained that the "support of schools for the children of Timor Leste, through Socktober, is invaluable and Catholic Mission, and Sr Carolina, a Salesian nun who cares for them are grateful and humble for the passion and enthusiasm of our Diocesan students.”

“Kicking goals for good - as part of Socktober - is an essential part of both the RE curriculum and Catholic Social Teaching and Catholic Mission is proud so many schools, and their students, have registered for Socktober and Mission Month.”

“The theme of this year's Mission Month and Socktober campaign is ‘Hearts on Fire, Feet on the Move’. This is evident in the actions of students in our local Catholic schools who have registered for Socktober and are looking to ‘kick goals for good’.

To get involved simply click here to sponsor our team and go in the draw to win one of several great prizes including:

  • Corporate Box at a Newcastle Jets game (including food and beverages)
  • Dinner for two at Rustica

The raffle will be drawn at the Catholic Mission and Diocesan Schools event on October 10.

The children of Timor Leste and Sr Carolina are grateful for our participation and support.”
