October is Mission Month! A time of celebration when churches worldwide come together to support the life-changing work of our fearless missionary brothers and sisters overseas. This year World Mission Sunday will be celebrated on the 21st October. It is the one day in the year that Pope Francis asks for your extra generosity. On this day, collections will be taken up throughout the world and used to help support missionaries who bring faith, hope and love to those who are suffering. On this day, your generosity will ultimately help build churches, hospitals, schools and vocations in countries where the Church is too young or poor to support itself.
For Mission Month 2018 we’re embracing the words of Pope Francis when he says all ‘Christian Families are Missionary Families’. What better way to commemorate the recent World Meeting of Families than by using his words as the theme for Mission Month 2018! During the month, there are many, many ways you can show your support – be it through action, giving or prayer.
