Home Mission Sunday is the day in the Church's calendar when the Catholic community in England and Wales is invited to pray for, celebrate and support the work of evangelisation in England and Wales.

It falls this year on 16 September and the theme is ‘Confident in Faith’. Home Mission Sunday 2012 is intimately connected to the opening of the Year of Faith which will commence just over three weeks after Home Mission Sunday on 11 October.

The Rt Rev Kieran Conry, Bishop of Arundel & Brighton and Chair of the Bishops' Conference Department for Evangelisation and Catechesis highlights the scriptural grounding to the day: 
"One of the purposes of the Year is to invite baptised Catholics to rediscover and be more confident in their faith. This is what St. Peter demonstrates so powerfully in the Gospel for Home Mission Sunday, proclaiming 'You are the Christ' Mark 8: 27-35. The more confidence we have in Jesus Christ as Our Lord and Saviour, the more ready and equipped we are to share the treasure of our Catholic Faith."
