 World Mission Month


This year for World Mission Day 2017 Pope Francis says:

Young people are the hope of mission…. They seek ways to put themselves with courage and enthusiasm at the service of humanity.”

World Mission Day is celebrated every year in every country wherever there are Christians committed to building a better world for all of God's people, a world where everyone has all they need to live a dignified and fulfilling life. It is the day on which we reflect on the urgency to proclaim the Gospel in our times. This year, World Mission Sunday is 22nd October 2017.

Missionary activity is, fundamentally, a going out of oneself in love, a reaching out to see God in everyone and to share God’s love with each person we meet – especially our poor and marginalised. Catholic Mission around the world has the responsibility of promoting a dignified and fruitful celebration of World Mission Day.

This month as we focus on World Mission Day we are urged to consider the following questions: How do we contribute to Jesus’ mission of life for all and for everyone to have life to the full? We invite you to wonder about the importance of health and education as a path to dignity and opportunity for people like Harriet in Uganda.​
