It’s 100 years since Pope Benedict XV’s encyclical Maximum Illud called Catholics to bring the Good News to all peoples (Missio Ad Gentes). To commemorate its anniversary, Pope Francis has declared October 2019 to be an Extraordinary Month of Mission (EMM2019). This special month of prayer and action calls us all to renew our missionary commitment by sharing the Good News of Jesus with all people!
Below are some real examples of how our Church family will celebrate the Extraordinary Month of Mission. However you are welcome to celebrate it whatever way you wish! For some extra inspiration and more details on the month, we have prepared an EMM2019 Facts & Toolkit. Click here to download the Toolkit
