Second Collection for World Mission Sunday
October 22, 2022 - October 23, 2022
World Mission Sunday is coordinated by Missio, the Pope’s official charity for world mission. It takes place annually on the penultimate Sunday in October and the World Mission Sunday collection is one of just three personally requested by the Pope each year.
Missio worldwide supports every mission diocese overseas (1,070) until they are self-sufficient. For this year, an international short film has been created, which focuses on the Holy Father’s theme for World Mission Sunday 2022 (WMS22) – ‘You shall be my witnesses… to the ends of the earth’ (Acts 1:8).

Two other short films focus on the work of a lay missionary – Maria – in Ethiopia https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAgrOtaZoiQ
… and on a beneficiary of Maria’s work at the Kidist Mariam Centre, Beth (her name has been changed to protect her identity), – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T7tkThdsY
Beth says: ‘I believe that God is always before you and behind you in all your troubles… He is prominent for a person like me, who has fallen in life. He is my life. God is my life and my everything’.
This weekend, please help support the work of Missio across the world!
