Catholic Mission is the international mission agency of the Catholic Church, comprising the four Pontifical Mission Societies. We support a diverse array of programs for children, communities and church leaders across Africa, Asia-Pacific, and the Americas.
Locally and globally, we answer the call to love God and to love our neighbour, and we work to establish the Reign of God by building communities of missionary disciples who share their faith by proclaiming the Word, serving people in need, acting for justice and creation and adopting child-focused community-based development programs.
Examples of our work include innovative education programs which aim to heal and build the nation of Myanmar; promoting safer maternal health in rural Uganda through the provision of vital equipment, resources and services; and fostering personal development and growth through sports for people with disabilities in Cambodia.
Founded in France in 1822 by Pauline Jaricot to raise funds for missionary activity in far-off lands, Catholic Mission is now the Pope’s official mission organisation, operating in over 160 countries to support initiatives in 1,100 dioceses, including remote Australia. Grassroots needs are identified by local Catholics to give people the opportunity for a full, enriched life—physically and spiritually—regardless of race, religion, gender, or stigma.
