I Will Build My Church!

 

Your ongoing support of the Society for the Propagation of the Faith is vital to the missionaries serving in 1,150 dioceses throughout Asia, Africa, parts of Latin America and Europe, and on the Islands of the Pacific. Your generosity makes it possible for local priests, religious, and catechists to reach out to communities, families and children in desperate need, bringing the light of Christ to the darkest of circumstances.

For this year’s World Mission Sunday celebration, we are focusing on the words from St. Matthew’s Gospel, “I Will Build My Church” (Matthew 16:18), highlighting the outreach of local churches through priests, religious and laity among the poor and marginalized half a world away. The specific example we have chosen is of Bishop Wenceslao (Wens) Padilla, the first Bishop of Mongolia, and his fellow missionary priests from the Congregation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and their work among families and children in need, sharing God’s love and mercy, His hope and peace, while offering practical help – changing lives every day! Similar help is provided to mission churches in territories covering more than half the globe.

Your prayers and generous support offered to the Society for the Propagation of the Faith on World Mission Sunday directly benefit the mission church – places like Mongolia where the young church is growing, filled with zeal for the faith, but lacking resources for its outreach to families and those in need. Such support is a concrete way to “build our Church” – to deepen your relationship with Jesus by helping Bishop Wens and so many other missionaries around the world.
