World Mission Sunday

World Mission Sunday is celebrated in every parish throughout the world on the next-to-last Sunday in October. The Pontifical Mission Societies provide for a global network of people who are making the difference for the poor and forgotten.  This worldwide liturgical celebration is the only annual appeal of this nature.

About World Mission Day

Approximately 1,150 mission dioceses receive annual subsidies from the Propagation of the Faith’s General Fund for their ordinary operations. These funds form the “lifeblood” of mission dioceses, as they are the monies used to finance the needs of the mission Church throughout the world.
These funds are destined for Mission Lands rather than Pastoral Lands and consist of Apostolic Vicariates, Prelatures and Dioceses. The vast majority of these settings are located in Africa and Asia.
