World Mission Sunday

October 22, 2023

“Hearts on Fire, Feet on the Move“ || “Corazones fervientes, pies en camino”

-cf. Lk 24:13-35

World Mission Sunday is an annual global celebration within the Catholic Church, observed on the second to last Sunday of October. This special day is dedicated to the support of the missionary work of the Church through prayer and sacrifices.

On Sunday, October 22, 2023 unite with all Catholics by praying for our brothers and sisters around the world. At any Archdiocese of Los Angeles parish, prayerfully consider giving a donation for the missions. This year Pope Francis has declared Hearts on Fire, Feet on the Move to be the theme for World Mission Sunday.

All the Archdiocese of Los Angeles parishes will ask parishioners to support this appeal during their Sunday masses. View the livestream from the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels here. We invite you to visit the Pontifical Mission Societies in Los Angeles website to get further information on World Mission Sunday or to make an online donation.
