Since 1922, Missio has been the Catholic Church’s official charity for overseas mission. They bring the hope of the Gospel where there is turmoil, poverty and uncertainty in the world, and where the Church is new, young or poor.
Missio empowers local people to form and sustain communities of faith and train and nurture future leaders so that the vital work of the Church in the world can take place.
To provide for the different needs of the overseas Church, Missio focuses on four main areas of provision:
- Caring for our Church family and sending missionaries
- Training future priests and sisters overseas
- Supporting children’s faith and development projects
- Nurturing a worldwide missionary spirit
What they do
On a parish level MISSIO have representatives who promote their work and collect on their behalf primarily through ‘red boxes’. The red box is taken home and filled with change before being returned to the representatives. Box holders are provided regular updates on the work of MISSION through a magazine.
How you can help
Consider donating to MISSIO by having one of their red boxes in your home.
