A picture is worth a thousand words…

For many people who embark on mission service locally or globally, their photographs capture memories that last a lifetime and help them share their stories with family, friends, parishes and beyond.

This year’s momentum event, Focal Point: Snapshots of Mission, celebrates the experiences reflected in these treasured images. Using stories and photographs, we’ll enjoy some snapshots of mission that have been developed in recent years by CMS Ireland short-term mission personnel (through teams and individual placements), as well as staff and supporters.

We would love you to join us for an informal evening of music, chat and refreshments; come and view the Focal Point Exhibition and share your own memories and snapshots.

How YOU can get involved…

Do you have a favourite photo or two that offer a window on God’s big story of mission? Maybe it’s a beautiful, artistic image from a mission event or trip, or perhaps it’s a simple shot of a person or place that means a lot to you – its value is in the story behind the picture! We would love you to send us one or two images, along with a few sentences to say where and when the picture was taken and why they mean something to you.

Simply email the high-resolution images to [email protected] by 16th September 2011 (to allow for printing) along with text that gives the story behind the photo. We will include the photographs in our website gallery, facebook page and will enter them into the Focal Point Competition. They may also be included in the exhibition.

All entries to the competition will be viewed by a panel of judges with photography expertise, who will share their professional opinion on some of their favourite shots.

Whether or not you submit pictures we would love you to see you on 29th.
