Three events will mark the days of the Extraordinary Missionary Month October 2019. On Tuesday, October 1st at 6:00 p.m. in St. Peter’s Papal Basilica in the Vatican, the Holy Father Francis will preside the celebration of Vespers which will be introduced by the Missionary Vigil and witnesses’ testimonies beginning at 5:15 p.m. The following on October 7th at 3:00 p.m., an international rosary will be held at the Basilica of Saint Mary Major led by H.E. Card. Fernando Filoni. The Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples and the Pontifical Mission Societies have invited Radio Maria to organize this event, which will have worldwide coverage, since it will be broadcast live on radio and video by almost 80 Radio Maria stations scattered throughout five continents. Volunteers and Radio Maria staff have been working for months to ensure the success of the event, which will be a source of many graces for each of us, for our families and for the whole world. On Sunday, October 20th on World Mission Day at 10:30 a.m., Pope Francis will preside over the Eucharistic celebration in St. Peter’s Square.
