Welcome to the Pontifical Mission Societies

in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles

Letter from the Executive Director
As we come up on seven months of pandemic reality, it is hard not to feel isolated, confined, and insulated. Everything in the Covid protocols discourages us from going out into the world and evangelizing. And yet, at the same time, we feel that tug in in our hearts reminding us that as baptized Christians, we are still called to be missionaries – to bring Christ’s love to our brothers and sisters struggling throughout the mission lands.
October is the month of the missions and our annual celebration of World Mission Sunday taking place on the weekend of October 17-18, provides us the opportunity to answer our baptismal call, from the safety of our homes, pods, and family groupings. The WMS theme, “Here I am, send me,” is the perfect metaphor for this year’s appeal. While we may not be going out into the world physically, we can still serve the mission lands through our prayers and financial support.
I know that many of you may be struggling financially, and that economic reality, combined with the uncertainties of the current situations we are facing can be extremely challenging. But this is our opportunity to say to the Lord, “Here I am, send me.” I encourage you to join us in this once a year commitment in support of priests, religious and lay pastoral leaders in more than 1,111 mission dioceses all throughout the world.
Please be assured of my prayers as we continue to journey together through these most challenging days. We certainly could not have predicted that this would be our current reality, but I pray that you are keeping safe and healthy, as well as spiritually and emotionally sound.

Thank you in advance for your participation and God bless!

– Reverend Monsignor Terrance L. Fleming
