Mission Sunday

Pope Francis invites all Catholics to contribute to a special collection today for Mission Sunday. World Missions Ireland is the Holy Father’s official charity for
overseas mission and is responsible for coordinating Mission Sunday in Ireland. This replaces the usual Share collection.
