World Mission Sunday
The World Mission Sunday is celebrated every penultimate Sunday of October. During the month of October, we are called to remember in a special way the great needs of the Church and her life-giving service in mission countries. World Mission Sunday is a day set aside for Catholics worldwide to recommit themselves to the Church's missionary activity through fasting, prayer and sacrifice. Local parishes collect a Second Collection dedicated to WMS. In 2012, World Mission Sunday will be celebrated on October 21.
