World Mission Sunday 2020 is on 18 October. Will you join us to share God’s love with those near and far?
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.

We are all called to share God’s love
In the Holy Father’s message for World Mission Sunday, he says:
‘The Church continues the mission of Jesus and sends us everywhere so that, through our witness and the proclamation of the Gospel, God may continue to manifest his love and transform hearts, societies and cultures’.

On this day through prayer, reflection and material help we express our support of missionaries from all continents who are striving to preach and live the Gospel among those have yet to receive it.
Our mission in Malawi
Sister Nilcéia is a Brazilian missionary working in a health clinic in a remote area of Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world. She has responded to God’s call by devoting her life to the practical care and spiritual nourishment of the most vulnerable.
‘Our small clinic is an oasis of hope. Despite the challenges, we persevere in this work because we love God and we love his people. I believe in the goodness of God and we serve as Jesus did. But sometimes, the darkness seems very dark. We share all that we have but sometimes it is not enough to save a sick child. The need here in Malawi is great but the Lord is faithful, and we continue to serve. We take courage from knowing you are with us in this mission. Together we are one family, one faith, one Church, and together we share love through good actions’.
Here I am, send me!
As part of the global Missio family, our mission is to help Churches too poor or too young to support themselves. We’re proud to be the Pope’s official charity for mission and to support the incredible and selfless work of missionaries like Sister Nilcéia!
What you donate today will make a difference to struggling communities throughout the world.
