October 19 World Mission Sunday – Organized by the Society for the Propagation of the Faith, World Mission Sunday is
an important day in the life of the Church because it reminds
Catholics worldwide about the importance of giving: “…as an
offering made to God, in the Eucharistic celebration” and for
the missionary activity of the Church (see Redemptoris Missio
81). We are reminded, as stewards and disciples, that it is the
Lord through His universal Church, who we are called to serve
- with the same love that He gives to each of us.
Octubre 19 Domingo Mundial de las Misiones – Organizado

Iglesia (ver Redemtoris Missio 81). Nos recuerda, que es al
Señor, a través de Su Iglesia universal a quien somos
llamados a servir como corresponsables y discípulos, con el
mismo amor que Él da a cada uno de nosotros.
