The Episcopal Church works hand in hand with neighbors around the world and down the block, praying for partner congregations and dioceses, and offering relief to our brothers and sisters during times of crisis. Episcopal missionaries around the world serve as the church's eyes, ears, hands, and feet on the ground.
The last Sunday in Epiphany of each year is designated as World Mission Sunday – a time when the church comes together to focus on the global impact of our call to “seek and serve Christ in all persons” (Baptismal Covenant, Book of Common Prayer, p. 305).
In 2013, World Mission Sunday will be celebrated on Sunday, February 10, and will focus on the ministries of the missionaries of the Episcopal Church.
