Next weekend October 19th and 20th we celebrate World Mission Sunday. Pope Francis invites the entire Church to support mission diocese in Africa, Asia, and the Pacific Islands, and parts of Latin America and Europe where priests, religious, and lay leaders serve the world’s most vulnerable communities. Please keep the Pope’s missions in your prayers and be generous in next week’s collection for the Society of the Propagation of the Faith.
O God of all the nations of the earth:
Remember the multitudes who have been created in your image
but have not known the redeeming work of our Savior Jesus Christ;
and grant that, by the prayers and labors of your holy Church,
they may be brought to know and worship you
as you have been revealed in your Son;
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen.
