World Mission Sunday 2017


Mission at the Heart of the Christian Faith
October 21st-22nd, 2017

Annually, World Mission Sunday is celebrated on the next-to-last Sunday in October. As described by Pope Saint John Paul II, World Mission Sunday is “an important day in the life of the Church because it teaches how to give: as an offering made to God, in the Eucharistic celebration and for all the missions of the world” (see Redemptoris Missio 81).

Pope Saint John Paul II has also spoken of the Propagation of the Faith’s General Fund of support, calling this a “central fund of solidarity.” In a message delivered during a World Mission Sunday, the Pope said: “The offerings that will be collected [on World Mission Sunday] are destined for a common fund of solidarity distributed, in the Pope’s name, by the Society for the Propagation of the Faith among the missions and missionaries of the entire world.” Earlier this year, Pope Francis issued his message for World Mission Day 2017 titled “Mission at the Heart of the Christian Faith”, inviting us to consider works of mercy both spiritual and material.
