The theme for this year’s Mission Sunday is: “Here Am I Send Me” . God’s question expressed by the Prophet Isaiah “is addressed once more to us and awaits a generous and convincing response: ‘Here am I, send me!’ (Is 6:8). Pope Francis says at the conclusion of his message. World Mission Sunday will be a day on which we will be able to reaffirm through prayer, reflection and material help our active participation in Jesus’s mission in His Church. Pope Francis specifies that the collection taken up on 18 October will support “the missionary work carried out in my name by the Pontifical Mission Societies, in order to meet the spiritual and material needs of peoples and Churches throughout the world, for the salvation of all.” Your donation can be placed in the special white envelope with purple top in your box of envelopes and can be dropped off to the Parish Office at any time.
We thank you for your generosity to this special annual collection.
