THE PONTIFICAL MISSION SOCIETIES

The Pontifical Mission Societies, known in some countries as Missio, is a Catholic worldwide network of missionary action and cooperation that is under the canonical jurisdiction of the Bishop of Rome (the Pope).  These societies include:

The Society for the Propagation of the Faith

The Holy Childhood Association

The Society of Saint Peter the Apostle

The Missionary Union of Priests and Religious

Since 1922, Missio has been the Catholic Church’s official support organization for overseas mission.  It raises awareness and fosters prayer and cooperation throughout the whole Catholic Church, bringing the message of Christ to the world, especially in countries where Christianity is new, young, or poor.  The societies care for and support the younger Churches until they are able to be self-sufficient.  Missio exists through the generosity of Catholics.

At present, Archbishop Giovanni Pietro Dal Toso is appointed the President of the Pontifical Mission Societies.
