World Mission Sunday

World Mission Sunday supports missionaries who work alongside communities that are poor or in need, regardless of their background or belief. By supporting Missio, the Pope’s charity for world mission, you will help missionaries share the love of Christ with those most in need.

Pope Francis encourages us to hope and trust in the Lord. In his message for World Mission Sunday, ‘Here I am, send me!’, he reminds us that ‘in a context profoundly marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, we must not be discouraged because mission is not the fruit of human capacity but belongs to God. He sent his Son Jesus Christ and today he sends every baptised person.’

Please pray for the mission of the Church throughout the world and give what you can to this very important collection which will sustain the future of our Church. Please call 020 7821 9755 (office hours) or visit Missio’s website www.missio.org.uk  to give a single gift, set up a Direct Debit and Gift Aid your donation, if possible and for more info. Thank you!

 

Here I am, Lord, send me to share your love with all people. May I be empowered and carried by you to be courageous and enthusiastic in bearing faithful witness to the merciful Father, to the love of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to the divine life in the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever. Amen.
