World Mission Sunday falls this Sunday, 21 October. On this day the whole Church unites in an act of universal solidarity in prayer for its missionary activity and in collecting funds to support the Church where it is too young or too poor to be self-sufficient. Forty percent of Church membership falls into this category. As the Pope’s official organisation for overseas mission, the theme this year is: Ethiopia: Together we can build a future.
The collection this weekend is one of three mandatory universal collections, the other two being for the Holy Places on Good Friday and Peter’s Pence. Thank you for your cooperation and support in giving to next week’s second collection which will make a vital difference to Churches living in difficult and challenging situations.
You can donate directly as well here.
