Pope Francis @Pontifex

Letter from the Director

The Mission Office at the Archdiocese of Los Angeles exists to promote the ministry of evangelization through the Pontifical Mission Societies. This month, we are called to help our brothers and sisters in the 1,100 Mission dioceses through World Mission Sunday, held this October 22-23, 2016.

During this year’s 90th anniversary, our World Mission Sunday celebration relates its theme to the Year of Mercy, “Mercy Changes the World." Organized by the Society of the Propagation of the Faith, WMS is a day set aside for Catholics worldwide to recommit themselves to the Church's missionary activity through prayer and sacrifice.

Pope Francis notes, “The mercy of God is His loving concern for each one of us…. As the Father loves, so do His children. Just as He is merciful, so we are called to be merciful to each other.”
