Mission is at the heart of the Christian faith. The Good News of Jesus Christ must be announced, lived and shared — from our home communities, to Third World countries, and to all places in between.
In the Diocese of Greensburg we understand that Catholics are called to continually recommit themselves to the Church’s missionary activity through prayer, sacrifice and action.
In his 2017 message for World Mission Day, Pope Francis reminded us,
“The Church is missionary by nature; otherwise, she would no longer be the Church of Christ, but one group among many others that soon end up serving their purpose and passing away.”
And while we recognize that we can share Jesus Christ with people around the world, this Christ-given mission also can take place in our own backyards.
