“One Family In Mission”
Founded by the Venerable Pauline Jaricot, the Society for the Propagation of the Faith seeks prayer and sacrifice for the world’s Missions.
Today, through the work of the Propagation of the Faith, Catholics of the world are sustained in their pastoral and evangelical work in over 1,000 mission dioceses in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Pacific Islands. In these areas of the world where the Catholic populations are growing far faster than has ever happened in the Church’s history, the Propagation of the Faith helps to bring humanitarian aid as well as funds for a priest’s seminary education, a village’s catechetical materials, transportation for an American priest, brother or sister who brings the Good News of Christ Jesus to people who are suffering a great deal.
The Pontifical Mission Society for the Propagation of the Faith is nothing else but “all of us committed to the worldwide mission of Jesus.” Though we cannot go ourselves, we can support and send others to do the good work the missions provide. In this way, we are all involved in mission work.
Mission Cooperation Plan
The Mission Co-op, is an opportunity for mission dioceses, societies and/or orders to come and speak to parishes in the archdiocese about what they do and their need for help. If you are a representative for a mission society and would like to take part in our mission co-op program contact:

If you are within the archdiocese of Omaha and would like to learn more about the program, about the group that visited your parish or about how the funds are collected and used, feel free to contact Mr. Gutiérrez at the information above.
World Mission Sunday
Every year there are several collections for the Propagation of the Faith. World Mission Sunday is a fund for the Pontifical Mission Society as well as for the Catholic Near East Welfare Society which addresses the needs of Catholics in the Middle East and North Africa. Your support for World Mission Sunday goes to providing Catholics there with humanitarian aid as well as funding to help Eastern Catholic Churches in union with Rome.
The Society of St. Peter the Apostle
The society raises funds through a mailing campaign to support men and women in the developing world to pursue a religious vocation in seminary or through a religious order.
The society began in 1889 when the Bigard sister supported the efforts of a French missionary bishop in Nagazaki, Japan who begged for help to keep his seminary open. From that time forward the Society of St. Peter the Apostle has continued to help keep vocations going.
Please consider supporting the Society of St. Peter the Apostle, a part of the Pontifical Mission Society.
