World Mission Sunday is celebrated around the globe. It helps people think about how to build a better world for all of God's people. It is on 20th October 2019.

This year, Pope Francis has made October an Extraordinary Missionary Month and asks each of us to think about ‘What’s My Mission?

What’s My Mission? Let the world guide you!

Can you see the 8 large and many small words popping out from the map of the world?

You will see that the 8 large words ‘show’ their meaning.

These words are: Mission, Life, Breath, Transform, Act, Call, Renew, Spirit

  • Why do you think these words are important?
  • Which word do you think is the most important (it could be a large or small word)? Why?
  • What does your word mean (according to the dictionary) or from your own understanding?
  • How does your word help you to think about how you can build a better world?

In Pope Francis’ special message for World Mission Day, he says

‘I am a mission, always; you are a mission, always…. As far as God’s love is concerned, no one is useless or insignificant.’
