Today is World Mission Sunday in the Catholic Church. The idea of the missions has evolved. Until 1907, the United States was considered mission territory. Priests. religious sisters and lay people came from Europe to evangelize non-Christians and preserve the faith of immigrant Catholics. Once the Catholic Church was established in this country, it was no longer considered mission territory. The idea of mission was seen in the many missionaries who devoted their lives to bringing the Gospel to countries in Africa and Asia. Today, the Church emphasizes that mission is proclaiming the Good News and bringing God’s love to others. That can be done anywhere, which makes all of us missionaries. On Monday, October 21st, Grades 7 - 10 will be praying the rosary at the outdoor shrine (in the Church, if it is raining) at 8:00 pm. You are welcome to join us. Get involved — support our young Church!
