The Japanese is not natural from the context. It should be 毎年9月の最終日曜日.
For example, if the Sunday was 26th, we don't say 9月末(9がつすえ)。
ちなみに、月末(げつまつ) is at the end of month. 下旬(げじゅん) is end of month.
Miki
9月末 is read 9がつまつ.
hmm but I found some sites 毎年○月末の▲曜日…。
Miki
I agree with Miki. It sounds more natural. If you don't like 最終日曜日、you can say 最後の日曜日.
