Mission Month

In the Catholic Church, October has long been associated with mission. The month starts with the feast of St Thérèse of Lisieux and draws to a close with World Mission Sunday – a special day of prayer and global solidarity celebrated in all Catholic parishes around the world.

Pope Francis has taken many steps to encourage all members of Catholic communities to recognise themselves as missionary disciples; working and praying together to share God’s love with everyone, everywhere. We echo his call each year as we encourage pupils and staff to participate in Mission Month.

Our resources below aim to support schools as they join the efforts of Catholics globally; to share the love and message of Christ in their communities, country and world. To see how children around the world are doing just this, please click here to visit our Mission Together Virtual Map.
