MISSION SUNDAY takes place on October 21st. This is the one Sunday in the year that Pope Francis asks us to pray a little stronger and dig a little deeper so that faith, hope and love can flourish. Contributions given on World Mission Sunday will support the fearless and selfless work of our missionaries, who live shoulder-to-shoulder with people in communities that are struggling and often war-torn. Mission Month and Mission Sunday is a time for you to fully appreciate the dedication of these missionaries who are there before, during and after any crisis. Funds raised help to build and maintain churches, clinics, nurseries and schools.
