Mission Sunday

Make a Contribution

Description

On the weekend of August 1-2, 2020, we join with the Catholic Church across the globe to celebrate World Mission Sunday. This annual second collection provides critical support to communities of faith in some of the most economically disadvantaged regions of our world. Working with limited means, these local churches bear witness to the Gospel amid poverty and turmoil, addressing all forms of material and spiritual need. On World Mission Sunday, we stand in solidarity with them through prayerful and financial support. Typically, missionary representatives visit churches over a weekend to speak and appeal for contributions. In the summer of 2020, travel is impossible for most missionary speakers and protecting the safety of both the worshiping communities and speakers is paramount. This means that in-person appeals are not possible. Yet the needs are greater than ever for communities of faith in under-resourced areas throughout our world. For that reason, the Mission must take place electronically in 2020. Funds raised through this year's Mission will support the work of the Daughters of Mary - Tabora, Tanzania.
