Second Collection for World Mission Sunday

SECOND COLLECTION—AT ALL MASSES THIS WEEKEND– FOR WORLD MISSION SUNDAY (EVANGELIZATION OF THE NATIONS)- OCTOBER 18 & 19, 2014. This national collection is given to the Society for the Propagation of the Faith which distributes the funds to every mission bishop to assist in the day-to-day expenses of operating the diocese as well as special projects, such as building churches/chapels, healthcare clinics, and training and support catechists. It is the responsibility of all believers to spread the Gospel and share in the mission of the Church. Guidance in this area is found in the Second Vatican Council document on the Church’s missionary activity.
