Washington – With a view to World Mission Sunday 2020, the Pontifical Mission Societies in the United States recall that this event will be celebrated on October 18, together with missionaries around the world, with a worldwide Eucharistic celebration and the solidarity collection of offerings. The goal is to support more than 1,000 local Churches in Asia and Africa, on the Pacific islands and in some areas of Latin America and Europe. Through the actions of these Churches and their testimony of Christ, the poor receive practical help and experience God’s love and mercy, hope and peace.
