In 2021 World Mission Sunday will be held on 24 October.
Please join us in celebrating this special day!
World Mission Sunday is celebrated in every Catholic community in the world. It’s a moment of grace to express solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Christ who are living in situations of poverty, violence and oppression. Every parish, school and community is invited to join this special event, and every penny, pound and prayer you give to Missio helps missionaries everywhere continue their work.
The Women’s Interfaith Council
This World Mission Sunday, get inspired by women reaching out across religious divides to heal their community.
The Women’s Interfaith Council is supported by Missio and features in our World Mission Sunday campaign this year. Click the images below to read the testimonies of women involved in this project and see why its work is so vital.
We cannot but speak about what we have seen and heard
In the Holy Father’s message for World Mission Sunday 2021, he says:
‘Jesus needs hearts capable of experiencing vocation as a true love story that urges them to go forth to the peripheries of our world as messengers and agents of compassion’.
On this day, through prayer, reflection and material help, we express our support of missionaries from all continents who are striving to bring the true love of Christ to all who have yet to receive it.
