Alvinus Kullu, the lone Catholic man at Asia’s second-largest National Rice Research Institute, Cuttack, Odisha, was able to witness his faith through his simplicity, kindness and understanding, during his 38 years of service.
World Mission Day — also known as World Mission Sunday — was established by Pope Pius XI in 1926. It is usually observed on the third Sunday of October and will be celebrated this year on Sunday, Oct. 23. It’s the one Sunday in the year when the entire global Church comes together to support mission. Every Catholic community, in every country, sends a powerful message of faith, hope and love on this special day.
