World Mission Sunday. Today, October 22, 2017 is World Mission Sunday. This year it has been given the theme: “Rediscovering Mission at the Heart of Christian Faith”. Catholics everywhere are invited to support the mission work of the Church. The distribution
of the proceeds of this collection is overseen by Pontifical Mission Societies, used for the missionary work of the Church in the neediest areas of the world. Your generous prayer & financial support is an excellent way to enable the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, the missionary heart of Christian communities, join in prayer to respond to the vast needs of evangelization. Thank you for your support & participation on this annual celebration.
