World Mission Day 2021


World Mission Day 2021


World Mission Day (Mission Sunday) was proclaimed in 1926 by Pope Pius XI. Every year on the penultimate Sunday in October. Mission Sunday is a chance for us to show love and solidarity with the brothers and sisters in the world who share our faith.

 At the Sunday Angelus, Pope Francis also paid tribute to missionaries around the world for their witness to the Gospel, often at great sacrifice.

The theme Pope Francis has chosen for his 2021 World Mission Sunday message is: We cannot but speak about what we have seen and heard (Acts 4:20). In it he says:

“Once we experience the power of God’s love we cannot help but proclaim and share what we have seen and heard. Jesus’ relationship with His disciples and His humanity shows us the extent to which God loves our humanity and makes His own our joys and sufferings, our hopes and our concerns.”
