World Mission Day 2019

  • Pope’s Message for World Mission Day 2019: Reviving missionary awareness and commitment

    'This missionary mandate touches us personally: I am a mission, always; you are a mission, always; every baptized man and woman is a mission'

    In this year’s World Mission Sunday the Holy Father called on all Catholics and the Church to revive missionary awareness and commitment. A message released by Vatican on Pentecost Sunday, Pope Francis writes about the importance of renewing the Church’s missionary commitment and giving fresh evangelical impulses to her work, preaching and bringing to the world the salvation of Jesus Christ. The World Missionary Sunday falls on the penultimate Sunday of October every year. It will be observed on October 20, this year, with the theme "Baptized and Sent: The Church of Christ on Mission in the World."
