"You shall be my witnesses"

Acts 1:8


World Mission Sunday is a day set aside for the Catholic Church throughout the world to publicly renew its commitment to the missionary movement. It is a day when our Holy Father appeals to us all for both spiritual and financial support for overseas missionaries.

This year’s celebration will take place on Sunday, 23rd October 2022.

Every parish, school and community is invited to join this special event.

Missio Scotland's focus for this year's Mission Sunday falls on Ethiopia and gifts received from your donations will help fund two projects.

The first project will help Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady extend a school they run to educate children with all kinds of disabilities. The sisters have been working in the country since 1899.

Read more about The Ababa Project here.

The second project is to help the people of St Peter and St Paul’s parish in Homecho complete the building of their church.


The opening of that parish church will be an extraordinary event for the parishioners and will also serve as a hub for the wider community.
