Extraordinary Year of Mission

Archbishop Charles Chaput is hoping everyone in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia will be reminded of their baptismal call to be Missionary in this special year through October 2019.

Each day is the perfect time to take part in this Mission of Christ. We are called to Missionary Discipleship in concrete places and relationships of our daily lives.  Listen to the Pope below on being Missionary.

For example, some young women, suffering because of their family situation and poverty, are forced to live on the street in Chennai, India. They grow up surrounded by crime, prostitution and other traumatizing experiences. Many of the girls become indifferent, suspicious, disheartened and broken by life’s circumstance. Sister Mary Gloria, a Salesian Missionary, helps restore the childhood of girls living on the streets by offering simple gifts.
