Extraordinary Month of Mission


Pope Francis has announced October 2019 as the Extraordinary Month of Mission (EMM) with the theme: "Baptised and Sent: The Church of Christ on Mission in the World." It's an extra-special month of prayer and action to help strengthen and grow God’s Mission and the Church. Dioceses, parishes, schools, and individuals are encouraged to use their creativity to develop initiatives that will bring the EMM to life. World Mission Sunday on October 20th complements the EMM, as it focuses on financially supporting overseas missions.

The Diocese of Calgary has compiled some resources to help Catholics revitalize their missionary work. Explore their website at Extraordinary Month of Mission Resources for:

  • Pope Francis' message,
  • the Mission Prayer,
  • 'Baptised and Sent' hymn,
  • facts and toolkits,
  • scripture reflections,
  • and more.
