Sunday 7th October: It’s Mission Month 2018! October is Mission Month! The most important day of this month is World Mission Sunday, which takes place on Sunday, 21st October.

This is the one Sunday in the year that Pope Francis asks you to pray a little stronger and dig a little deeper so that faith, hope and love can flourish. Contributions given on World Mission Sunday will support the fearless and selfless work of our missionaries, who live shoulder-to-shoulder with people in communities that are struggling and often war-torn. Mission Month and Mission Sunday is a time for you to fully appreciate the dedication of these missionaries who are there before, during and after any crisis. World Mission Sunday is coordinated by ‘World Missions Ireland’, originally known as the Pontifical Mission Societies.

It is the Church’s official charity for overseas mission, and is part of a worldwide network of over 120 charities. Many of the international offices go by the name ‘Mission’. World Missions Ireland and their fellow charities ensure that the contribution you give on Mission Sunday will be justly distributed to where the need is greatest within our universal Church.

You can donate €4.00 now, by texting the word ‘Mission’ to 50300. (Texts cost €4. World Missions Ireland will receive a minimum of €3.60. Service Provider
