World Mission Sunday History
World Mission Sunday seeks to promote solidarity and interconnectedness among Catholics. This day allows one to recommit themselves to the church. Through prayer and sacrifice they are able to strengthen their faith. This day is organized by the Society for the Propagation of the Faith. They handle the collection of proceeds as well as the distribution.
World Mission Sunday was first established in 1926 by Pope Pius XI. He created the day to collect money for the worldwide missionary work of the church. World Mission Sunday is observed annually on the next-to-last Sunday of October.
