WORLD MISSION SUNDAY
Today is World Mission Sunday. Today, every Catholic community and parish throughout the world takes part in World Mission Sunday.
It is a global effort to bring spiritual and material help to our brothers and sisters who long for hope and love that comes from knowing Christ’s love for them. Your kind support will assist all missionaries across the world. It will help new churches to grow, be strong and vital faith communities. Please continue to pray for all those who serve in mission countries and please be generous in your support of their work. May God bless you always.
