World Mission Sunday

Today, with the Catholics of the world, we celebrate World Mission Sunday.

We are called at our celebration of the Eucharist to offer our prayers and our generous financial support to continue the mission of our Lord Jesus Christ. By our prayers and by what we offer from our hearts we support mission priests, religious sisters and brothers and catechists to bring the good news of salvation and the compassion of Jesus to the poorest of our human family.

On this Mission Sunday let us be united in faith and in spirit with the church in Africa, Asia, Oceania and other parts.

“You will be my witnesses to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1:8).

Special envelopes are in the pews.
