World Mission Sunday

World Mission Sunday (WMS) is celebrated throughout the Universal Church in response to the Gospel invitation to solidarity with all the world’s peoples, especially those most in need of the Good News of God’s love.

In the Acts of the Apostles St. Peter and St. John tell the leaders in Jerusalem, “We cannot but speak about what we have seen and heard.” (Acts 4:20) Pope Francis reflects on this statement, “As Christians, we cannot keep the Lord to ourselves: the Church’s evangelizing mission finds outward fulfilment in the transformation of our world and in the care of creation.”

Throughout our world, mission dioceses strive with limited resources to follow the model of Jesus, even during a global pandemic. We call upon the Catholics in the Archdiocese of Chicago to generously join in prayerful and financial support through this annual second collection.
