On this day the whole Church unites in an act of universal solidarity in prayer for its missionary activity and in collecting funds to support the Mission of the Church worldwide. Presently 40% of the Church is considered missionary. The World Mission Sunday collection supports the local Church where it is too young, weak or vulnerable to be self-sufficient. The collection is one of three mandatory universal collections. (The other two are for the Holy Places on Good Friday and Peter’s Pence.) Collection money should be sent directly to the Missio Office. Missio can only claim Gift Aid on money sent directly to them.
