Every year during the month of October the church celebrates World Mission Sunday. This Day is a day set aside by the Catholic Church throughout the world to publicly renew its commitment to the missionary movement. It is celebrated on the penultimate  (next-to-last) Sunday of October every year (October 18 , 2020; October 24, 2021). It was created by Pope Pius XI in 1926 as the day of prayer for missions and is closely related to the  Society for the Propagation of the Faith.

Along with World Mission Sunday every year the Diocese of Kerry celebrates mission during the month of October by holding various events and activities to further the cause and promote awareness of Mission throughout the Diocese.
