Since 1922, Missio has been the Catholic Church's official charity for overseas mission.
It brings 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 it trains and nurtures future leaders so that the vital work of the Church in the world can take place.
Over generations, Missio's work with children has helped to build the family of God. Being universal in character, projects tend to the needs of all, regardless of background or beliefs; exemplifying the all-embracing nature of the Catholic Church.
The Association for the Propagation of the Faith (APF) assists each and every one of the Catholic Church's 1,069 mission dioceses to provide pastoral care and preach the Gospel effectively.
In England and Wales, funds for overseas mission are collected through the famous Red Boxes. These can be found in 200,000 homes and they have helped raise millions of pounds for the missionary Church.
If you would like to have a Red Box please ask or look on the notice-board in the Church for information.
