“Join in the Worldwide Mission of Jesus”

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.

This year’s theme is Join in the Worldwide Mission of Jesus. Missionaries have been spreading Christ’s love and His Gospel since He ascended back to His heavenly Father. As His followers, Jesus commanded us to make disciples of all nations, and today’s missionaries continue to fulfill that mandate. However, they need a strong support system of spiritual prayerful care and financial stability. As God’s people, we must be good “senders” in the Great Commission by our prayers and sacrifices.

Membership in the Society for the Propagation of Faith is vitally important for the ongoing support of missions in over 1,150 dioceses around the world.  The Society’s members enable Christ’s mission to continue with strong convictions, zealous ambitions, and energetic apostolic work.

Membership envelopes are included in your February collections envelope packet. Thank you for your generosity!
