Faithful throughout the Archdiocese of Philadelphia gathered Oct. 21 to participate in the Annual World Mission Sunday Mass led by Archbishop Pérez at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul. The annual Mass commemorates the work of mission churches throughout the world and the support they receive from the faithful of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.

In addition to the Mass, students in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia were recognized for their winning artwork submitted for the World Missions 2023 Christmas Card Contest. Learn more about the Pontifical Mission Societies in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia at (Courtesy Photos)
