Where there is hatred, sow love

World Mission Sunday 2017 was celebrated on 22 October. This special day focused on the Church in South Sudan where sadly, conflict continues; more and more people are hungry, homeless and traumatised. Retribution is rife.

Help bring peace to South Sudan

This young country is on the brink of collapse, but there are brave and compassionate people working hard to help South Sudan find a better way forward.  Read more about the work of Bishop Paride and how he is trying his utmost to bring peace to his people.

And you can help. World Mission Sunday is your chance to support our missionaries and the Church in proclaiming the Gospel of peace to those who suffer around the world.

By supporting Missio, the Pope’s official charity for overseas mission, you’re sharing the peace and love of Christ with all people. You’re helping everyone in need, regardless of background or belief.
