About Missio

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:

- Children's projects (faith, health and education)

- The training of local priests and sisters

- The building of Church infrastructure and support of faith communities

- The promotion of world mission through prayer and study


Missio is a registered charity No.1056651, governed by a Trust Deed dated 18 June 1996. Missio is part of the Pontifical Mission Societies worldwide network and does not receive grants from the Government or EU sources and does not keep investments.
