Mission Sunday takes place on Sunday 18th October.
Message from Pope Francis
Pope Francis in his message for World Mission Day 2015 has this to say:
“Every baptised person is called to bear witness to the Lord Jesus by proclaiming the faith received as a gift. Since Christ’s entire existence had a missionary character, so too, all who follow him closely must possess this missionary quality. As Vatican II stated: ‘The laity should cooperate in the Church’s missionary work of evangelisation, as witnesses and at the same time as living instruments, they share in her saving mission’
