Mission at home

ImageKairos: Volume 18, Issue 19

World Mission Sunday takes place this year on Sunday 21 October. In the past it was a day when we prayed for missionaries who were working in far away lands ‘preaching the good news to the pagans.’ We contributed to the Mission collection taken up at Mass and then went home having done our bit for the cause. Today, it is a time for all Catholics to be reminded of their calling to be people of the Gospel, ready to share it with others.
