The second collection on October 18 supports Catholic World Missions.

By Baptism, all Catholics are called to participate in the mission of the Church and share their faith as missionaries. World Mission Sunday gathers support for the pastoral and evangelization programs and needs of more than 1,150 mission dioceses in Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands, and remote regions of Latin America.

The funds gathered on World Mission Sunday are distributed in the pope’s name by The Society for the Propagation of the Faith, a Pontifical Mission Society.

Please make your checks payable to The Propagation of the Faith and drop them in the parish collection containers or go online at and click Donate Now! If you receive weekly envelopes, you will have an envelope for World Mission Sunday in your envelope packet. 

Thank you for your support!
