World Mission Sunday
World Mission Sunday is a day set aside for Catholics worldwide to recommit themselves to the Church’s missionary activity through fasting, prayer and sacrifice. It is celebrated annually on the second to last weekend of October. Parishes have a second collection to benefit the Society of the Propagation of the Faith, which supports missionaries -priests, religious and catechists- serving in 1,111 dioceses throughout Asia, Africa, parts of Latin America and Europe, and on the Islands of the Pacific.
