UPCOMING EVENTS

Sunday, October 20.

   Second collection today for World Mission Sunday. In 1926 Pope Pius XI instituted Mission Sunday for the whole Church with the first worldwide Mission Sunday collection taking place in October 1927. The Mission Sunday collection is always taken on the next to last Sunday during the month of October. That day is celebrated in all the local Churches as the feast of catholicity and universal solidarity so Catholics around the world will recognize their common responsibility with regard to the evangelization of the world as found in Matthew 28:18-20 and other parts of the Bible.
