World Mission Sunday

World Mission Sunday is the Holy Father’s annual appeal for spiritual and financial support so that the life-giving work of overseas mission and missionaries can continue. It always falls on the second last Sunday in October, meaning this year it will be celebrated over the weekend of Sunday 22nd October.

The theme for this year’s celebration of Mission Sunday is: “Hearts on Fire, Feet on the Move” (Luke 24: 13-35).

Parishes are asked to return the proceeds of collections held on that day as soon as possible.
