It’s 100 years since Pope Benedict XV’s encyclical Maximum Illud called Catholics to bring the Good News to all peoples (Missio Ad Gentes). To commemorate its anniversary, Pope Francis has declared October 2019 to be an Extraordinary Month of Mission (EMM2019). This special month of prayer and action calls us all to renew our missionary commitment by sharing the Good News of Jesus with all people!

World Missions Ireland is Pope Francis’ official charity for overseas mission. WMI is part of a worldwide network of 120 offices, under the coordination of the Pontifical Mission Societies in Rome.
