World Mission Sunday

Pope -world mission sunday 2014World Mission Sunday, organized by the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, is a day set aside for Catholics worldwide to recommit themselves to the Church's missionary activity through prayer and sacrifice.

Annually, World Mission Sunday is celebrated on the next-to-last Sunday in October. As described by Pope John Paul II, World Mission Sunday is "an important day in the life of the Church because it teaches how to give: as an offering made to God, in the Eucharistic celebration and for all the missions of the world" (see Redemptoris Missio 81).

Our Archbishop's Pastoral Letter, "Lord, where are you going?" (Domine Quo Vadis?) is, in part, the fruit of many consultations and conversations with clergy and laity over this past year.
