The Catholic Church’s Official Charity for Overseas Mission

Since 1922, Missio has been the Catholic Church’s official charity for overseas mission. We 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.

Our focus areas

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 development projects
  • Nurturing a worldwide missionary spirit
