The Archdiocese of Caceres will hold the annual World Mission Sunday on October 19, 2014. The Archdiocese of Caceres celebrates the universal mission of the Church especially in the Year of Faith with a growing awareness of the missionary vocation of all Catholic Christians. Mission work is not only for priests but also for the laity. The missionary commitment of proclaiming the Gospel to all peoples is a responsibility of the whole people of God.
During the World Mission Sunday on October 29, 2014, we shall celebrate mission with the youth and children hoping that through mission animation activities we can inculcate in them the joy of living their faith and sharing them with their peers. The future of the Church is in the hands of our young generation thus we need to enkindle in them the passion for the Church’s mission.
I am directing all parish priests, heads of schools and institutions, and leaders of all religious organizations, movements and ministries to give their support and participation in our mission animation activities in the Archdiocese. I am also asking from our parishes and schools to give a more generous contribution to the World Mission Sunday Collection intended for the Universal Missionary Fund of the Holy Father.
Given at our Chancery Office, Pilgrim City of Naga, Republic of the Philippines, this 10thday of October, in the year of our Lord, 2014.
