Each year, the Pope designates the month of October as World Mission Month and the next-to-last Sunday in October as World Mission Sunday. On that Sunday, Catholics are united in celebration of our common vocation to mission, focusing on the Pope’s missions around the world and the missionaries who dedicate themselves to their service.

During this unique time, the Church draws together to support, in prayer and through financial help, the proclamation of the Gospel; vocations to the priesthood and religious life; the building of churches and chapels; and the efforts of priests, religious Sisters and Brothers, and lay pastoral leaders as they help the poor, the hungry, and seek the spiritually abandoned.

This year, World Mission Sunday is October 24; however, the entire month is devoted to learning more about the Pope’s missions and supporting their success through prayer and donations.
