MISSION MAGAZINE – A free resource for junior high and high school students, and adults.
Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen published the first issue of MISSION magazine in the spring of 1951. Today, more than 60 years after that editorial was written, this publication continues to introduce readers to the mission story, making the vital connection between those who hear the Good News of Jesus – and those who support the work and witness of the missionaries who proclaim the reason for our hope, Jesus Christ.
MISSION offers you starting points for personal reflection: Scripture quotes, messages from your brothers and sisters in the Missions and from missionaries, even a word or two of mission wisdom from the founding editor the late Archbishop Fulton Sheen. As those thoughts take shape, there’s space for you to write them down, maybe even pen a prayer for the Missions – all this to help you prepare a spiritual journal, your own thoughts and prayers on your personal path to God. You might write a few words or insights; you might count your blessings. And hopefully you’ll see more clearly — in the faces and words on these pages — your own vital role in the continuing mission of our Lord, loving Him and neighbor.

WORLD MISSION SUNDAY
Each year on the next to last Sunday in October, the Church celebrates World Mission Sunday. This day is celebrated in all the local Churches as the feast of catholicity and universal solidarity so Christians the world over will recognize their common responsibility with regard to the evangelization of the world. Just as our young church here in the United States received support in the 19th century from the Catholics of Europe through the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, so too the growing churches in the Developing World today also require financial help.
- A gift of $25 would be a month’s support for a young woman preparing to serve as a Religious Sister in Indonesia.
- A gift of $60 is a month’s education for a seminarian in Nigeria.
- About $50 a month helps a local Religious Community of Sisters in Tanzania care for the poor.
Use your World Mission Sunday envelope from your packet of Church envelopes and your generosity will help make a faith-filled difference around the world!
Break away from the ordinary... Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen was that kind of person and it's reflected in his World Mission Rosary. Its uniqueness is in the five colors represented in each of the decades. The color symbolism is a gentle reminder on which to focus our prayers. This rosary honors the work of the missions, conversions and world peace with special emphasis on each of the Earth's regions, where prayers are needed.
