In this part of the website find the most up to date information on initiatives that are happening in the next few months. This includes Evangelii Gaudium Sunday, formerly known as ‘Home Mission Sunday’, which is celebrated every September and ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ which takes place every May/June.
Evangelii Gaudium Sunday:
The Third Sunday in September, formerly called Home Mission Sunday, is now Evangelii Gaudium Sunday. Named after Pope Francis’ first (solo) Apostolic Exhortation on the Joy of the Gospel, the day offers the Catholic community in England and Wales the opportunity to be joyous in proclaiming the faith – seeking new ways of understanding the faith and reaching out to others.
For more information, please visit our Evangelii Gaudium Sunday Page here.
Thy Kingdom Come:
Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus. What started in 2016 as an invitation from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.

Mission Made Possible helps you to do just that.
World Day of Prayer
This is an annual occasion which takes place on the first Friday of March. It is ‘a women led, global, ecumenical movement’ and unites people in a worldwide circle of prayer through a service which celebrates fellowship, prayer and understanding of various races, cultures and traditions. Each year focuses on a different country and theme and sets out to promote the movement’s motto ‘Informed Prayer; Prayerful Action’.

Take a step of faith
Is the thought of sharing your faith just too scary? Do you wish you could help your family, friends and others to come to know Jesus, but you just don’t know where to start? Are you thinking; ‘that’s not for me, I could never do that’? Well, you are not alone. You are invited to become missionary and deepen your journey of discipleship from home. The Diocese of Plymouth’s online course will help you to have conversations about faith. Conversations with friends, family or in daily life that don’t make anyone else feel awkward but could be life changing.
