Mission-Today-Fall-2017-coverTo highlight the 91th World Mission Sunday, 22 October 2017, the Most Reverend Vincent Nguyen, Auxiliary Bishop of Toronto and ponens with the Pontifical Mission Societies for English Canada, and the Most Reverend André Gazaille, Bishop of Nicolet and ponens with the Pontifical Mission Societies for French Canada, have each prepared a message to indicate how evangelization is at the heart of the Christian vocation and also to help promote the national collection.

This past June, the Holy See released the Message of the Holy Father for the 2017 World Mission Sunday. In his Message, on Mission at the heart of the Christian faith, the Holy Father writes: "... it is important to ask ourselves certain questions about our Christian identity and our responsibility as believers in a world marked by confusion, disappointment and frustration, and torn by numerous fratricidal wars that unjustly target the innocent. What is the basis of our mission? What is the heart of our mission? What are the essential approaches we need to take in carrying out our mission?"
