World Mission Sunday

This day the universal Church reflects its deepest identity as the Church in mission. Catholics worldwide unite at Mass to recommit to our vocation to be missionaries. We are called in a special way to be missionaries through prayer and participation in the Eucharist, and by giving generously to the collection for the Society for the Propagation of the Faith. Your generosity makes it possible for missionaries, priests, catechists and pastoral workers to reach out in the name of Jesus to communities and families in need in 1,150 dioceses throughout the world. All proceeds are disbursed to the Missions; no funds are held in reserve.

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!


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.
