The special collection this weekend is for World Mission Sunday. Through prayer and sacrifice we are able to support those missionaries who bring the Good News of Jesus to faraway places. In doing so, we are renewing our own vocation as missionaries. The Church is, after all, missionary. This weekend we invite you to celebrate the hope that saves through prayer and participation in the Eucharist, and by giving generously to the World Mission Sunday collection. Your vital contribution to the Pontifical Mission Societies will support those 1,150 young mission dioceses and communities who await the Good News of Jesus as their saving hope.
