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.
The Diocese of Sacramento will present Dr. Bill Keimig, assistant director of the Catechetical Institute. He will speak on the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults process and how incorporating its liturgical, catechetical and pastoral accompaniment aspects make it a vital part of the New Evangelization in our parish communities.
