The Church has received “the mission of proclaiming and establishing among all peoples the Kingdom of Christ and of God, and she is, on earth, the seed and the beginning that Kingdom.” Lumen Gentiium 5:57
World Mission Sunday is October 20, 2013.
Our Holy Father has indicated that he wants us to celebrate his inauguration as Pope by performing acts of charity for the poor and those in need. As a concrete act of solidarity, we invite you to see the world as the Pope does – through the eyes of those struggling to make ends meet on a daily basis.
Modeling the Pope’s love for the "least among us" and moving forward on our call to love neighbor, we seek your support. Each donation will be converted into funds to support transportation costs for poor and low-income communities in the United States and around the world. Those costs will include bus passes, train tickets, bicycles or a gallon of gas for those in need of a little help to "keep moving."
Each dollar donated will be used by the Pontifical Mission Societies or Catholic Relief Services to help someone get where they need to be – for work, a job interview, a medical appointment, a ride to school.
Give the gift that keeps your faith journey on track – and your neighbor’s life moving in the right direction.
All the baptized are on pilgrimage in Christ’s mission for the world, thus all are missionaries for the world.
