The Mission Sunday poster this year celebrates the election of Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires, Argentina as successor to Pope Benedict, taking the name Francis or in Gaelic “Proinsias”. He is the first Pope from South America and the first Jesuit to be elected Pope.
As we move towards the conclusion of our celebration of this Year of Faith, (11th Oct 2012 – Nov 24th 2013) in Ireland our theme for World Mission Sunday (October 20th) this year is “Growing in Faith”.
