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 we train and nurture future leaders so that the vital work of the Church in the world can take place.
Their focus is 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
We support Missio through the Red Box scheme, by encouraging parishioners to hold one of the boxes in their home for the collection of change.
