Evangelii Gaudium Sunday – 18th September 2022

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 celebrate the beauty of our faith and our commitment to witness to the fullness of life in Christ.

Evangelii Gaudium Sunday will be celebrated in Catholic parishes throughout England and Wales this year on Sunday, 18 September.
