World Mission Sunday
This weekend, we will be having World Mission Sunday second collection. By Baptism, all Catholics are called to participate in the mission of the Church and called to share their faith as missionaries. World Mission Sunday gathers support for the pastoral and evangelizing programs and needs of more than 1,150 mission dioceses in Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands, and remote regions of Latin America. The funds gathered on World Mission Sunday are distributed in the pope’s name by the Society for the Propagation of the Faith a Pontifical Mission Society. Please be generous.
