The season of Advent is a wonderful opportunity to engage young people in their call to missionary discipleship, seeking their prayers, actions and monetary sacrifices for their brothers and sisters around the world. These resources are designed to love beyond the classroom, engaging families who by virtue of their baptism share in the triple mission of Christ: priest, prophet, and king.

Ordinary Time

Called to Missionary Discipleship 24/7

God has blessed your parish, school and home through calling you to witness to your faith in Jesus Christ and thus helping children deepen their knowledge, love and life in Him. What a gift to be able to live your own call to missionary discipleship by accompanying them on their faith journeys! Pope Francis reminds young people that Jesus calls each one of us to become His missionary disciples - the path to sainthood. MISSIO helps all children on the path of holiness, those at home and those in mission countries.


World Mission Sunday, our annual worldwide Eucharistic celebration for the Missions and missionaries of the world, will be on October 21. This collection on the next-to-last Sunday in October is a unique, global effort for the entire Church to provide for the building up of over one thousand local churches in Asia and Africa, the Pacific Islands, and parts of Latin America and Europe. Through the work of these churches, and their witness to Christ, the poor receive practical help and experience God's love and mercy, His hope and peace.
