Next weekend, October 17th and 18th, the Catholic Church celebrates World Mission Sunday. We are called through our Baptism to be part of the Church’s missionary efforts, through prayer, self-sacrifice, and support of the Mission Church through material aid.
This year, Pope Francis asks us to respond to that call, saying, “Here I am, send me!” Ways we can “send” ourselves:
- Pray for the Church’s worldwide missionary work.
- Offer* financial help and charity through the collection for the Society for the Propagation of the Faith for the vulnerable communities throughout Asia, Africa, Latin America, and the Pacific Islands.
In a world where so much divides us, World Mission Sunday rejoices in our unity as missionaries by our Baptism, as it offers each of us an opportunity to support the life-giving presence of the Church among the poor and marginalized in more than 1,111 mission dioceses.
Please be as generous as your circumstances allow. Thank you, Corpus Christi!
