World Mission Sunday is on the penultimate Sunday in October each year. It’s the one Sunday in the year when the entire global Church comes together to support mission. And every single donation from these worldwide Masses goes to support churches, hospitals, schools and vocations in countries where the Church is new, young or poor. Every Catholic community, in every country, sends a powerful message of faith, hope and love on this special day.This is our chance to show love and solidarity to our global Church family. Through our prayers, we support missionaries everywhere in spreading the Good News. And by donating we respond to Christ’s call to feed the hungry and clothe the naked.
As Pope Francis had decreed that October would be an Extraordinary Month of Mission, Mass on October 20th was celebrated by Bishop Mark, alongside parishioners, and Tony Armstrong and Christopher Bleasdale of Missio - the Catholic Church's official charity for overseas mission.
