2019 World Mission Sunday collection

The Catholic Foundation

Parishes in the Diocese of Sacramento will take up the World Mission Sunday special collection during liturgies Oct. 19-20.

The faithful are called to personal encounter with Jesus Christ alive in the church and to offer, through the eucharistic celebration, their prayers and financial support through the Society of the Propagation of the Faith, to continue the mission of Jesus. They are called through their baptism to be part of the church's missionary efforts, through prayer, self-sacrifice and support of missionary vocations through material aid.

Funds from the World Mission Sunday collection support mission priests, religious sisters and brothers, and lay catechists who are Chirst's witnesses to a world so in need of his healing, love and peace.
