World Mission Sunday 2017

Where there is hatred, sow love; help bring peace to South Sudan

This year World Mission Sunday will be celebrated on 22 October. This special day will be focused on the Church in South Sudan where sadly, conflict continues; more and more people are hungry, homeless and traumatised. Retribution is rife.

This young country is on the brink of collapse, but you can help bring peace to the people of South Sudan. Click here to read more about the work of Bishop Paride and how he is trying his utmost to bring peace to his people.

World Mission Sunday is your chance to support our missionaries and the Church in proclaiming the Gospel of peace to those who suffer around the world.

By supporting Missio, the Pope's official charity for overseas mission, you will be sharing the peace and love of Christ with all people by helping everyone in need, regardless of background or belief.

On this special day you can join Catholics worldwide in praying for our global Church and supporting brave missionaries and churches overseas that are too young or poor to support themselves.

Thank you for your compassion and generosity.
