World Mission Sunday

October 22, 2017

World Mission Sunday is the annual worldwide Eucharistic celebration for the Missions and missionaries of the world. The collection taken on this day is a unique, global effort for the entire Church to provide for the building up of over one thousand local churches in Asia and Africa, the Pacific Islands, and parts of Latin America and Europe. Through the work of these churches, and their witness to Christ, the poor receive practical help and experience God’s love and mercy, His hope and peace. In his message for the celebration, Pope Francis reminds us that mission is at the heart of Christian faith.
