Mission Sunday

Next Sunday, 21st October is World Mission Sunday! Pope Francis is asking you and every Catholic worldwide to come together in celebration of World Mission Sunday. On this very special day every Church, in every parish across our globe will give what they can, no matter how little, towards the World Mission Sunday collection. Your contribution will be used to help spread faith, hope and love by supporting overseas missionaries, many of whom work in some of the world’s most impoverished and remote communities. If you can’t contribute on the 21st, you can donate €4 now by texting the word ‘Mission’ to 50300. (Texts cost €4. World Missions Ireland will receive a minimum of €3.60. Service Provider LikeCharity. Helpline 076 680 5278. Republic of Ireland only)
