Today is World Mission Sunday!
Today, World Mission Sunday, with Catholics throughout the world, we are called to offer our prayers and generous financial support, through the Propagation of the Faith, for the worldwide mission of Jesus. Your gift on World Mission Sunday helps….People in remote villages, towns and cities through the witness and work of missionaries and local priests. Children, the elderly, refugees, the sick, and orphans through the service of Religious Sisters and Brothers. To bring the Gospel to the poorest of our human family. Catechists proclaim the message of hope and peace that only Christ can give. Please offer prayer for work of the church in the Mission today – Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands and Latin America. And please be as generous as you can today, World Mission Sunday.
