World Mission Sunday is on October 24, 2021!

This year, Pope Francis reminds us of our baptismal call – to respond as missionaries, saying "We cannot but speak about what we have seen and heard" (Acts 4:20). Today we respond to that call, through our prayers and personal sacrifices for our brothers and sisters in the Missions – in places like Uganda where people face food uncertainty and violence... in the Philippines where local clergy face martyrdom… in Oceania where people’s livelihoods are threatened by climate change… and in remote regions of Latin America where people are hearing the Gospel for the first time.

Respond this World Mission Sunday by supporting the priests, religious Sisters and Brothers, and lay catechists who provide loving service to those most in need. Thank you!



This summer, join a mission seminarian in his "courageous witness" for Christ...

2,600 seminarians are preparing for the priesthood in India. They join priests and religious who are on the frontlines in the fight against COVID-19, which has been devastating that country. Many priests and Sisters have given their very lives in this service, victims themselves of the coronavirus. Seminarians in India have also at times faced strong opposition to Christianity. Yet, as one seminarian noted, “we are preparing to be courageous witnesses for Jesus Christ.” As priests, in their celebration of the Eucharist, they will make Christ present in His Body and Blood for the suffering, the persecuted, and the poor.

Your gift this summer helps so many young men preparing to serve God’s people as priests in Africa, Asia, the Pacific Islands, and remote regions of Europe and Latin America. These current and future missionaries are lacking resources. However, they continue in hope – following where the Lord has called them, especially in these times of pandemic and recovery.

With your help, the Society for the Propagation of the Faith/Society of St. Peter Apostle supports some 30,000 young men preparing for the priesthood in mission seminaries in India and throughout the Missions. Your donation enables us to provide textbooks, technology, housing, food, and medical care – even at times, beds to rest from studies. A year’s help is $700 for each seminarian, about $60 a month – that’s just $2 a day!
