World Mission Sunday
October 21/22, 2017: Celebrating our Missionary Spirit
On World Mission Sunday, Catholics around the world unite to recommit to their missionary identity.
This year’s theme, Mission of the Little Flock, calls to mind the places where the mission Church is small, marginalized and persecuted—the little flocks of Jesus. An example is the mission Diocese of Vijayapuram, India, where the Church is a minority supporting the poor and disenfranchised. Please offer prayers and gifts of support on World Mission Sunday.
This is an appeal of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, which supports our brothers and sisters in over 1,150 mission dioceses worldwide.
