World Mission Sunday
Pope Francis has set October 2019 as an Extraordinary Missionary Month (EMM) to foster greater awareness of "missio ad gentes" (mission to all peoples) and to animate the missionary transformation of Church life and pastoral activity. World Mission Sunday (WMS) will be celebrated in this EMM on October 20.
Your ongoing support of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith is vital to the missionaries serving in 1,111 dioceses throughout Asia, Africa, parts of Latin America and Europe, and on the Islands of the Pacific. Your generosity makes it possible for local priests, religious, and catechists to reach out to communities, families and children in desperate need, bringing the light of Christ to the darkest of circumstances.
Parishes throughout the Diocese of Fort Worth take up special collections to support World Mission Sunday. Please give generously when these collections are announced in your parish.
