World Mission Sunday

World Mission Sunday is the Holy Father’s annual appeal for spiritual and financial support so that the life-giving work of overseas missions and missionaries can continue. It always falls on the second last Sunday in October, meaning this year it will be celebrated over the weekend of Sunday the 23rd.

Every year to enhance World Mission Sunday celebrations Missio Ireland prepare the Mission Month Pack. These resources are designed to help individuals, parishes and communities celebrate not just World Mission Sunday, but the entire month of October.
