The First Sunday in February

On the first Sunday in February, parishioners throughout our diocese are invited to make a special commitment to the worldwide mission of Jesus, through the Society for the Propagation of the Faith.

At Baptism, we are called to be a missionary, to share our faith and pass on the Good News of Jesus among the mission poor. Through the Propagation of the Faith, we can reach out to the peoples of the world by providing prayers and financial assistance to missionary priests, religious Sisters and Brothers, and lay catechists.

Membership envelopes are included in your February collections envelope packet.

Thank you for your generosity!

“Supporting the Missions for 200 Years…”

This year’s Membership Sunday theme commemorates the upcoming beatification (in May 2022) of Pauline Jaricot, who founded the Propagation of the Faith in 1822.

Pauline understood the many difficulties missionaries face.  Her desire was to prayerfully and financially support the Church’s missionary outreach.

Today, missionaries bring the saving and life-giving Gospel to the most vulnerable men, women, and children in over 1,150 mission dioceses.  Your membership in the Society for the Propagation of the Faith enables the Church to stand in solidarity with God’s people, offering faith, hope, love, and service.
