Mission Month

In the Catholic Church, October has long been associated with mission. Pope Francis reaffirmed this by designating October 2019 an Extraordinary Month of Mission. Its aim was to encourage all members of our Catholic communities to recognise themselves as missionary disciples; working and praying together to share God’s love with everyone, everywhere.

Children rallied to the call and inspired by their efforts, this year we’re encouraging schools to participate in Mission Month ’21. We recommend this takes place in October, as the Church has established feasts which reinforce mission themes, but feel free to designate a better time for your school community.
