Wednesday, October 5th



The Catholic Church remembers Missions Month in October. Missions Month is a way for us to remember that we all have gifts and that we are asked to share them with the world to make our planet a better place for all. Today we are going to pray for missions around the world by using a prayer supported by Pope Francis.  

Heavenly Father,

Your son told his disciples

to go to all the world and make disciples.

We know this challenge is still with us today.

Help us to support and pray for

missions around the world,

so that people around the world

may know the love and mercy of Jesus,

who lives and reigns with you.
